I drew the short straw with work/school hours recently which leaves me with a fairly unconventional sleep schedule, and the only time I have free to ride is during the night. I’m not super keen on spending the summer on the trainer though! I often run at the same time or finish up in the dark as well as having seen some other footage of riders doing late night rides, so I kind of like the idea of riding when it’s a little quieter out though I have the obvious safety concerns. Curious to know if anyone has any advice, experiences or gear recommendations! (I also don’t drive much, so I’d be interested to hear that perspective)
If it helps: I’m looking at heading out around 1-2am and I live in a small town, so traffic is fairly minimal. Road conditions are also pretty good, but I’m mostly concerned about narrower sections where climbs/turns make visibility a bit more limited, and the possibility of drivers being a little more distracted because it’s not as busy. Sadly no gravel/bike paths nearby or I’d be there!
