Night ride at Lake Crabtree Park

Thursday turned out to be a fairly lazy day.  I couldn't get up in time to work out in the morning and after work, I contemplated going on the Crabtree mountain bike night ride or staying home and working out in the basement.  Since the weather is turning for the worse this weekend (rain, maybe snow), I decided I had to ride my bike since I might not get a chance again until next week!  So I packed my stuff up, found my night lights (NiteRider Lumina 500 USB Rechargeable Bike Light), put one on top of my helmet and the other on my handlebars (I like my night rides to be as a light as day!).  The one on top of my helmet was pretty heavy and kept tilting my helmet towards my forehead which was annoying but since I didn't spend much time setting it up, I got the quality I deserved.  I still could see though and did a very leisurely lap around Crabtree.  The only other annoying thing was that my hips/quads still hurt and I'm not sure why anymore. I don't know if my bike fit is still wrong or if I'm not riding enough but the aches need to go away.  In total, I did about 6 miles in 1 hour!  A slow ride but still a ride and it was a beautiful night, glad I got out there.  Also- first night ride of the season!  I should do more but that would require planning and being prepared.
