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.
