Some Good Reasons to Night Ride
So combine the facts that I run a small mountain bike tour business here in Nelson, BC and work a semi-full time job as well, it means that opportunities to actually find chances to feed my riding addiction can be a bit challenging at times. But, I have been lucky enough to get my hands on a Hope Vision Two LED night light and all of a sudden, the window for shredding trails is wide open.
Never mind the ability to avoid the beat-down from the heat of a long summer day, or getting some needed saddle time when the amount of daylight is shortening, but take a look at these photos I was lucky enough to capture on my own night rides, and if this doesn’t make you want to go out and try it for yourself, well, then I don’t know what else I can say.

Melissa Yule just sent us a link from her and Kate Harris’s blog on the Silk Road Cycle tour.
They have made it to Kashgar, China, and will soon be setting off in an attempt to cross the Tibetan Plateau on their way to Nepal and finally into India where the trip will wrap up in Ladakh.
