Wednesday Light Ride Rowlett Creek Preserve 03-08 6:30pm

It's that time of year again to ride with your own light so you can see the trail. These start at 6:30pm. You should also bring a helmet and a mountain bike. There's not much chance of RCP being open this week but I just wanted to announce this to jinx it even further.

The ride is generally for all levels but I don't typically recommend people jump into night riding unless they've already done at least 10 rides during the day.

If you're looking for lights a lot of people run two of the following light. They use one on the helmet and another on the handlebars.

There's also this optional lens that changes the hotspot from round to retangular. A lot of people swear by it.

The battery quality on those lights may or may not be good but I know plenty of people have had no problems with them. Also with or without the optional lens these light have a hot spot that washes out the trail more than the more expensive lights. That's part of the reason the other lights are more expensive.

Magicshine makes mid-tier lights price-wise. http://magicshineusa.com/products/lights

After that they get expensive pretty quickly with companies like Light and Motion:
