This is our new blog detailing our daily adventures, mountain bike racing, endurance sports, and maybe even some cooking (that's Anne's domain!). We will share our experiences with life, training, and most importantly, being a team-both in marriage and in our sport.

Always a good idea after a ride!
So I got out for my first proper night ride with the new light. In a word, outstanding. Riding at night brings out so many things that are great about riding. It makes an old trail new, and sharpens your skills like nothing else. All the stuff you forget to do (i.e. looking up through corners, looking ahead of you on the trail, etc.) are brought back. You HAVE to do these things or else you'll crash. It's like being super concentrated on one task and one task only. I'm sure after I get used to it a bit more things will change, but for now, this is one of the coolest things I've done in a while. Love my light and will have many more night time adventures to come!
