My twice weekly commute on the bike takes me through some pitch black woods for ten minutes or so. This morning my lights picked out two sets of glowing green eyes (just a pair of foxes)and my poor heart did quicken somewhat for a little while. I spent the nextfew minutes scanning the woods for rabid dogs, madmen and zombies.
I want to do some night rides in my local woods, but my friend keeps letting me down. Are solo night rides ok? Do you get used to being out in the woods alone.. in the dark.. I think I have an over active imagination when it comes to things going bump in the night.. in the woods.
Do I need to just get out and stop being a wuss? Will the fear go away?
