I could be at home now, watching telly with the kids. Well I was thinking about going for a pint, instead I’ve punctured my lung and it’s slowly filling up with blood. I’m going into cardiac arrest now. Silly place to overtake really. Still you live and learn, don’t you?

Wearing really good gear can help in a down pour. Preparing for the worst and hope for the best is our motto. We wear Gore Tex suits and Gore Tex gloves in the rains we hit where we live and on the road. We ride all year, rain or shine so we know a thing or two about staying safe in climate weather.

As it is, some riders avoid the night because unless extra steps are taken, it is usually harder to see and be seen. What’s more, in many regions splattering bugs can be an issue, as can deer or other nocturnal animals. And if you crash in the middle of nowhere, well, that could be a bad scenario, no doubt.
But this said, many commuters wind up riding in the dark of the early morning or after the sun has gone down, or both. And many others may finish a day of riding after sundown. So, if you expect to ride in the dark, you’d be well advised to assess your equipment and decide whether it is really all you need it to be.
And even once you are satisfied with your setup, you will still want to ride within limits. Continue reading “Night Riding”
