Night Ride - Awesome

Went night riding for the first time ever the other night, and it was incredible. The most fun I've had on a bike in a long time. It made familiar trails seem new, and gave riding single track a whole new dimension.

Stopped to go out onto the beams of an abandoned bridge to stare at the stars. Only complaint was that my toes felt like they were going to fall off they were so cold...I can't wait to try when the weather gets warmer.

Just felt like sharing my excitment...

First time I went night riding I injured my coxis because I didn't see a speed bump. No thanks.

I use a MTE 900 Lumen Lamp on my bars and 2 trustfires on my helmet at 250 lumens each.

I burn Trees down! 1400 lumens!
