It’s been suggested that the term “evening ride” would be more appropriate. Those of us who were riding all through the winter might feel a slight sense of disapointment at the lack of freezing cold, ice, snow, hail, or sleet, but there are some distinct advantages to summer nights;
- We are in the Northern part of the Northern hemisphere, it’s midsummer next week, and it stays light ’til very late. You didn’t even need lights for about the first half of this ride.
- It was warm, there was a nice sunset, and the view from the top of Brimmond Hill was spectacular.
- You can go for a longer ride. It’s a combination of it being light, warm, and summery, people feel good, you feel like adventuring a bit further than you would on dreary winter’s night.
I can’t wait for next week’s midsummer night-ride.
