This title purposely left blank

Took the afternoon off work, to ride. Was really tired, I thought if I could just fall asleep sitting on the couch for 15 minutes it would recharge my batteriesCheck Spelling. So I sat down on the couch, and it wasn't going so well regarding falling asleep, I was thinking of too many things. Then in a snap of the fingers it was 30 minutes later, I knew I had dozed off. I feA lt better, checked the temperature picked out what to wear and headed out on the bike.

Was windy, was nippy and 35 degrees as the sun left to visit others west of here. Cold was really sinking into my bones as the sun went down. I didn't have enough clothing, the last 15 miles, my hands, toes, back and shoulders had the chills sink into them. Rode 62 miles on trails, never saw another bicyclist. It was dark by the time I got home. My lighting system works great. I have two red blinkie lights on the back to keep the cars from turning me into smashed taters when I have to ride the blacktop to get home. Also my front headlight is 900 lumen's and works well. I want to do more night riding, something about it that adds a thrill to the ride.

Ok no riding for a couple of days now, headed north to visit Sir Cole, my grandson and family.

Thanks for stopping.

900 lumens? What light do you have? I have 600 lumens and get the stink eye from oncoming cyclists pretty bad.

Amy, I think you asked on my blog about my light. Well I don't think it was Amy my sister who hasn't rode bicycle in 40 years. :-) But that light is a MagicShine, see picture and link. I can use it as 300/600/900 lumen. It does rule the darkness.
