Light Recommendations :

Headlights
This is the best light for the money if you are on a budget. You can usually find them from other stores for about $80 to $100 with out the 100% guarantee.

http://www.rei.com/product/845389/cygolite-mitycross-800-osp-front-bike-light - I had this light and it was A+ (battery would not keep charge and fell apart on me after 2nd season of Mountain biking and road riding. Full refund from REI and bought a new set from them)

I currently use this light for road biking and it casts such a great beam that you can supply light to two riders. This light is brighter than the one posted above. The brighter light is better when you are cranking above 20mph. Other than that the 1100 lumens is to much. The beam pattern on this light is better than the beam pattern on all other lights I have used.

I also have this light – used for mountain biking (not so good for road biking because of beam pattern, but GREAT for mountain biking.)

Tail Lights

Battery powered
For a budget this light is really bright and very good. It has lasted 3 years and still going strong.

Rechargeable
I recommend this for a tail light. On low blinking lasts for 9 hours and does not use batteries.

    Thanks

    This is a great ride because it has some long stretches of road with a stop sign at the end. For those who want to get in some sprints or go for strava they can do so. When you hit the stop sign turn around and rejoin the group or have a break and wait for everyone to catch up :)
    This worked out really well last time. Also we will be riding and watching the sun set. Always a good experience out in the farm lands.
