When I was bike commuting to and from work I was always riding at some point thirty minutes before or after sunset or sunrise. For me, these times of day are the most beautiful for a cyclist and photographer. the changing light and shadows added with the singing of the birds always overwhelms my senses.
I waited to start this ride so that I could ride a little in the dark and see how my light works. I have not been on my bike in full darkness for a long time. This ride served two purposes, I enjoyed the period of golden light and I got to ride int he dark. the only thing that I forgot to put in my gag was Gator mosquito spray.
Strava Results show that I am starting to put in bike commuter mileage as I did back in 2015 when I was riding every day.
