Another night riding bonus: Christmas lights!(2 posts)

Another night riding bonus: Christmas lights!tarwheel

I finally got a light system so I can ride at nights after work, and found an unexpected bonus -- riding at night is a great way to see the Christmas lights. I've mainly been doing recovery rides at night because I'm not real comfortable going fast in the dark, even with my headlights on the brightest setting. So, I've just been taking it easy and riding through neighborhoods and back roads after dark. The Christmas lights look really great from a bike and are easier to see than while driving a car. My bike sort of looks like a Christmas tree, as well, because I've got two red lights in the back -- one in flash mode and the other on chase. ... Now, if I could just find a flashing green light!

You'd look like an airplane taxiing for takeoff.
