Mountain biking at night is a special experience. Even the most familiar trail is transformed when cloaked in darkness and lit only by the twin beams of your light and head torch.
Your speed feels different, the noises are different; it’s exhilarating and thrilling and something every rider should experience. It’s also easy to do – you just need bright enough lights, and all your regular kit. Some places even rent out lights, or you could borrow some from a friend. Give it a go!
