It makes for, sometimes, sketchy riding but much less since the fat bike. Now I just worry about the beady eyes that stare back into my headlamp. Is it a fox? Moose? Muskox? Or a reflector. So far all except bear (cross my fingers) have been seen but mostly reflectors or foxes. It certainly keeps me awake!
Today I went for a longer ride and was on the road by 5 am. That's 4 hours of darkness...... oh and wind. Yep, the fall/winter north wind is back and it was hopping on the way out as a head wind and an awesome tailwind on the way back. I took some pics though dark and some video of the return. You can tell I was riding high with the tail wind. This was followed by a little tundra riding. The music, of course, is my wife's original.
