Last night was my first night ride since my winter adventures that I took up north and locally here on the frozen lakes and trails surrounding the west metro area that I live in. I had almost forgotten how exhilarating it is to be on a mountain bike at night.
Lighting the trails up with 150 lumens makes it much safer than one would think. The light is very small, but it really kicks out the candle power. Some of the low spots were quite foggy and it gave the ride a kind surrealistic feel. Every now and then a deer would jump or run across the trail in front of me. One came frighteningly close.
