It's dark when we go home from work now ... but there's no need to stop getting out!
We'll ride the Coyote Loop by Horse Butte - in the dark, but with lighting. Please expect a 100 minute ride. To carpool we'll meet 6:00 pm at Worthy or meet us 6:15 at the trail head. Sunset is 4:50 PM.
Though the terrain is moderate, the conditions at night will make the terrain more like an intermediate ride and require that you have very, very good lighting.
Lighting. Folks seem to prefer 100 lumens or more. Most find the simple 1 Watt LED headlamps insufficient. I am riding currently with a 650 lumen Nightrider on the handle bars and a 250 lumen Nightrider helmet mounted. There are many sufficient configurations - let me know if you have questions.
Bring water, energy food, lighting, backup lighting, bike repair gear, and appropriate clothing for inclement weather. It's cold out after sunset so dress appropriately.
To carpool we'll meet at the parking lot outside Worthy Brewing on the north side near the green houses. Please be on time so we can leave at 6pm sharp. You can also meet up 15m later at the trailhead.
