    Headed out now to warm up for an hour and a half or so. I'm a fan of daylight.

    Do I need a light for my helmet or one on my bike, or both?

      Going to pull out of this ride. Did not realize head lights were so expensive. Maybe I can catch the next one.

    Just a suggestion, I purchased a 1600 lumen Lumitrek light from Amazon for $124. It works great and it turns out they are a local company here in Morrisville.

    I'm going to have to pull out of organizing again, sorry everyone. :/ I got hit by a car while training (or i hit it. i don't remember. a car pulled out of a side street and I didn't have time to brake/swerve), so I won't be able to help organize the night ride next week. I have a broken collarbone and various other less-major injuries. I should be back for the next night ride with luck. Have a fun ride everyone! Sorry!

      Get better David. A prime example of why cars are more dangerous than trees. Let us know if you need anything

    I am double checking with Drew if this is still a go. Just realized that this is the night before Thanksgiving. Will keep you updated. I will be OOT and Paul Elliot will be coming to help lead if we still are a go.
