So i went on my first ever night ride with a couple of friends yesterday. Just a couple of trails that i've done regularly by day but wow, how much fun? It's a great way of making even the more boring sections a lot more fun! Dare i say made the trails come alive(tm) even with old fashioned 26" wheels! Really slippy/slidey/muddy though
Definately reccomend it if it's not something you already do, bring on winter!!
Lights wise total spend was £40 ish with a x2 solar storm on the bars and a magic shine copy ebay special on my helmet. Seemed a good combination, nice spread from the x2 and a good spot from the helmet mounted light. Rode for 90 mins with no loss of light using their standard batteries.
