    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.

    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

    Don`t you folk ride at night all year round? or do you have to be home before a curfew/ turn into a pumpkin? πŸ˜†

    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… πŸ™‚
    Now sunset is 7.30pm here so you get a daylight, sunset,and night trails into a 3 hour local ride πŸ™‚

    Watch out for Trolls πŸ˜‰

    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 πŸ™‚

    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?

    Not yet.

    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. πŸ‘Ώ

    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 Β£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 πŸ˜€

    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!
