The leaves are starting to fall, there’s a little nip in the air and the sun is setting a little earlier day by day. All of this means night-riding season is just around the corner! Time to dig out the lights, get them charged up, find your waterproof gear, give the bike some love and maybe change your tires out to something a little more grippy. Now that your bike and gear is ready to go what about you?
If you’ve even been out in the pitch-black forest and had a light go out, you know how much fun it is trying to pick your way back to the car all the while being watched by the creatures of the night. In much the same vein what would happen if you were to lose a contact lens while out riding? No Fun. The answer can be simple though.
Have you considered adding a set of daily disposables to your tool kit? Dailies work out to around $2-$4 a pair and have a shelf life of around three years. Cheap insurance and an absolute life saver if you’re out at night and have a mishap! Come and see us and we’ll get you setup and ready for the season.
One of our favorite after work loops is on Fromme Mountain. Park at Dempsey/Braemar. Head up the Dempsey climber and over on Baden Powell, do the grind up Mountain Highway and then enjoy the Expresso-Lower Expresso-Pennzoil descent! We are big supporters of the NSMBA and a proud to help their trail building and maintenance work through our Sponsorship of the organization.
