Lunar Eclipse Ride

It was beautiful tonight. The roads were almost empty, the trails were quiet except the coyotes. The Lunar Eclipse taking place. Tonight was a very peaceful solo ride.

Cool! Did you bike naked? It's a Druid thing... has to do with the eclipse coinciding with solstice.

Very nice. The cloud cover here prevented me from watching it, which is fine, I preferred to sleep through it anyway.

What kind of light do you have on the front of your bike? It seems to do a great job lighting up the trail. May be doing some nithg MTB this year...errr next year.

LMAO!! Nope, hills, slight wind and 29 degree temps kept all the cloths on. HAHAHA

I did not, but it's amazing how the night can make places seem spooky. Every rustle of the trees/shrubs makes you look.

The light is fantastic, I love it. By far IMO the best light for the $$. It's called an Amoeba. The lights are made here locally but can be purchased from anywhere. The guy who builds them stands behind them %100 also.

Fantastic pics! I wanted to see the solstice, but, in Seattle, it's not that common that we can see the sky this time of year. Thanks for posting these.

Here is his blog page. It has info on the light https://www.amoebalight.blogspot.com/

It's just a small rechargeable battery and a couple L.E.D. bulbs!
