Last Friday, while the kids played with friends, Steve and I grabbed the fat bikes and hit the trails in the Ashland Town Forest.

My first night time trail ride, I enjoyed the tranquility of the woods, as well as the challenge of exploring trails in the dark (the moon was a mere sliver, making the ride extra dark).

With a little planning, and a few pieces of equipment, riding the trails at night is a great way to get outside, even after the sun has set.
