Thank you mother mountain for the grin plastered upon my face today. As i sit in front of my tech'd spec'd ibook awaiting another day of push pins and paper work, i thank you for the organic orgasm brought about by your technical trails and hellacious log-crossings. You took me back to my roots last night during the course of an hour in the dark with friends, singletrack, and artificial light. You put me down on your roots upon several occassions as if to reprimand me for an abandonment the home you created for me as i wandered off into the more often traveled wilderness of the open road. Damn I missed those hidden valleys and unpassable log-crossings (passable only by those who have not abandoned you). I am coming back my dear. even if for a short while, i am trading in my assos and carbon fibre everything for my dualie and visored helmet with full-fingered gloves. I will relish your welcome for the month I meander through transition and savor every minute of it
Man i love night mountain rides!!!!

Glad you're back to yer roots! ;-) I've been mountain biking for maybe 9 or 10 years(although there have been some years where I only went a few times!) and have finally been bitten by the road bug! This year I've been doing both and on my only bike - my mountain. Due to the fact that it gets dark so early now, I'm also considering a set of lights. A friend of mine just purchased a set and is LOVING them. I can imagine what a blast it must be out there in the dark, w/friends!!

Enjoy,

Night Riding with lights is some of the best riding i've ever done. You completely re-discover trails you use to ride in the day time. You should absolutely invest in a good lighting system. I've had great luck with Nite Rider systems. Their pretty light, and powerfull enough. They're also built pretty tough

Cheers!

Needs a few more metaphors and some $100, out of place words to really qualify. Otherwise, a fine description of pleasure and pain. Just keep ridin'.
Careful out there. Don't go all crazy...klay
