MTB Night Riding
Riding at night is popular for a wide range of reasons.
During the winter it’s tough to sneak out before the sun goes down making your late afternoon / early evening rides with friends tough without lights. In the midst of the summer heat night riding allows you to escape the oven like temperatures. And while these are good reasons, they’re not really the best reasons for night riding.
Adventure: even trails you know like the back of your hand are a different animal at night. As much as we all love traveling to new destinations the reality is we spend most of the time on our local trails. Trails that allow night riding provide a new, different experience – including typically some amazing views along the way.
One of the benefits of night riding is the improvement to your riding skills. Riding at night with lights you’re forced to learn to let the bike “work” as you can’t really view each minute detail and worry about it. It teaches you to be loose on the bike allowing it to move underneath you while finding the critical spots to “catch” it for direction changes and whatnot.
A light on your helmet is quite the visual marker of where you’re actually looking on trail. Looking down trail is critical – keep your head up and light up! If you’ve been riding within your skillset your bike should be able to handle what’s happening and imminently going to happen. You should be concerned with setting up that next section. Having the beam of light “tattle” on your line of sight is a good reminder to look downtrail.
It’s important to remember to ride in your comfortable skillset at night. Help might be a longer wait so it’s also good to have an extra layer and some basic tools for trail fixes. Riding with friends and having a couple extra meetups helps keep everyone in a tighter group and accounted for.
Some of my favorite memories are night rides on San Juan Trail in the Ortegas. Something about being the only ones out, having a blast with your buddies and understanding the darkness of the wilderness versus the city (its funny how much farther the lights seem to be away at night than when you ride the same trail during the day!) – Night riding is an amazing adventure.
Personally I ride with one light on my helmet and one light on my handlebars. This helps maintain a bit more shadow on the trail to keep it from “whiting out” so to say. The greater lumen light should be on the handlebars while the lighter, smaller light is a good helmet mount option.
Enjoy the adventure!
