Night riding: it’s great fun. Regular trails take on a whole new persona, illuminated by a small pool of LED light. Taming the trails through the winter darkness with a decent set of lights is not only a good way to keep riding; it’s also a huge load of fun.
Oh, and did we mention the post-ride pint in the local pub? A chance to reflect on the thrilling ride you’ve just shared with your mates, while normal people give you curious glances over their drinks while you stand there, steam pouring off and sweat dripping down your nose.
Best of all, riding at night makes you feel like you’re hurtling through the trees at warp speed. Something this video that Josh Ibbett filmed with us down in Brighton last week amply demonstrates.
