10 Reasons why you should strap a light to your bike and go riding in the dark!
When the long days of summer give way to the dark side of winter it seems tough to find the motivation to get the bike out of the shed and go for a spin. But just because the darkness has crept in doesn’t mean the time of day has gone too. The night time opens up doors to whole other realm of riding waiting for you to dive in to.
We hooked up with UK based company Exposure Lights, put some of their great lights on our bikes, hit up the trails and went on an adventure!
1) Think you’re pretty fast… in the day time!
Riding in the dark is a totally different kettle of fish, even when you think you know the trail. The light and shadows that the good old ball of fire provides us with actually gives you a pretty good sense of depth perception. Stick a single light pointing away from you on the top of your lid and all that goes, that big rock in the trail actually looks like smooth flat trail. Try going day time speed on your favourite trail!
