The light system is charged and ready to go. That time of year has arrived...darkness comes early and a chill is in the air and even after dark the trails beckon to be ridden.
Wednesday night I had an awesome ride up in the park. Knowing it would be the last truly nice evening for the next several I made sure to get out. Especially since having to miss the first Tuesday night single track ride.
I rode for a solid two hours and my only companions were the stars, the Moon, Jupiter, and the other creatures of the night. Night riding is intoxicating. I know some of my non-cycling friends and family would say..."You have to be intoxicated to want to go riding through the forest at night." I love it!
