I did! Ok it was only at the beginning of September so far:
with a bit of 80's retro music, free of charge.
Sort of...it was a day ride,in the dark.With no lights
What lights are those? Didn't seem to be giving you much illumination!
Went last night for til 10pm ish, clear sky, lots of animals and glowing eyes; I have missed the dark
Stuey, to be fair i can't remember, they are old lights running on an old Lumicycle battery. That's why i have to stick behind the leader with his Exposure Light.
Just in from first dark night ride@ Mabie followed by some good banter and a chicken curry in the Shed cafe
It was wet, very, very wet
did first "start in the dark" ride about 3 weeks ago, were plenty of "it'll finish in the dark, so bring lights" rides since the middle of july. the price of riding buddies with small kids, who need putting to bed before daddy can come riding
Wednesday coming........@ Glentress
Yep brief flirt last night- enjoyed it but know by January time the novelty will have worn off!
I nightride all year round - mainly due to work!!!
Oh yes ......been out for the last couple of midweek evening rides........new light you see ...
Every night of the week so far for me. In fact just got back in from tonight's sorty.
Don`t you folk ride at night all year round? or do you have to be home before a curfew/ turn into a pumpkin?
Even in southern Scotland its dark enough in June by 10 pm in woods for lights,
Know what you mean though, tis the time to get lit up...
Now sunset is 7.30pm here so you get a daylight, sunset,and night trails into a 3 hour local ride
Last week heading home, sky is light but dark in the woods, hard to film a t night...
Yup... Back in from another lovely spin around Delamere.
Rode home from college in the dark. Does that count?
Out 'till nearly midnight on Tuesday! Loved it - cool but not cold, trails running proper fast, and no fatalities...!!
I go out every Wednesday night. Only for a few weeks in June do we have daylight for the whole ride. first ride of the second half of the ride starting in the dark yesterday. Beautiful night for it
Use my lights year round but last night felt like the first properly dark one this autumn. I love night rides
just waiting for the missus to come home.....
Just got in. First night ride for over two years (broke my wrist last time). Loved if
Got the lights out for the first time in a couple of months on Sunday. Enjoyed!
Nightride every Monday, Wednesday(club) and Friday(solo, if I can fit it in)
Nightriding is the nuts
Need to sort the lights out on my local rides bike, a job for Monday evening I think and maybe head out on Tuesday
Saturday night I think is going to be my first nightride of the year. Didn't do much at last winter but I think I'll give it more of a go this year. Moving to my native north east, so old friends and home trails are a good combination
Rode my MTB to a spin class last night 6:30 - 7:30. Hadn't realised that it was dark so soon. Ride back through woods with no lights was interesting and a little spooky. Didn't want to go too fast as I couldn't see much, but didn't want to hang around with all the gremlins either?
Tomorrow.. but will be starting as a day ride... through the night and finishing as a day ride
Between injury and a Formula bleed kit from one of the 'budget' suppliers, not actually fitting my Formula brakes. I have been off the bike for the past few weeks.
If I don't ride this weekend, I may fly into a murderous rage.
Did the first one this week and found out my magicshines had turned to magic shites , Continued round at a snails pace but still enjoyed It.
I'll be out again next week.
Got out this week, dragged my old riding buddy out for his first ride this year with his £30 ebay lights (that worked amazingly well for the money)
Met some new folks and had an awesome time, still not run out of battery with my new lights yet so 2 hours is doable
Yup - I did it in July - started at Nanty at 10pm and finished 15 hours later in Brecon
have a word with the guy you are following, flashing rear light in the woods, very poor form!!!
Brilliant singletrack ride with the BrightonMTB guys around Stanmer Woods last night. Fantastic conditions.
First one last night - but then I do do one every night in the winter with my dog.
Used my new Troutised Hope v2 - excellent!
