nightrideI have heard some say that if you have never ridden your mountain bike at night, you have never really mountain biked.  Unfortunately, since starting riding off road three years ago, I have never been on a night ride.

There is no real good reason why I have not, expect that I do not own the gear and have been a little nervous doing it by myself.  Certainly, I am enthralled with the idea of riding at night and although some of our popular trails do not allow official night riding, many night ride the bikes trails at UNC-Wilmington.

I have had several friends offer up lights to borrow and have even had some personal group night ride invitations.  Therefore, my goal for 2013 is to explore the experience the joy of an off-road night ride.
