Welcome to October! So I totally got caught up watching Lady Gaga’s new documentary and Netflix… no regrets, so I guess you’re just gonna have to live with me posting this on a Tuesday Night. Anyways the sun sets at 7:20 or so nowadays so our midweek rides are definitely into the night - I would recommend something like this https://www.mec.ca/en/product/5051-604/City-Rover-610-Front-Light as a front light and a blinky as a rear if you want to be riding in the evenings. Onto the news!
