Night Ops

IMG_9532(Harbert, Michigan) Take one Giant Simple Three bicycle and add some headlights, tail-lights and reflectors, and you have the means by which to ride the ‘hood at night.  And with the moon in its full glory last night, I had the perfect night for some night ops on my new bike, Red.  Red was ready, and off we went for a ride around Harbert that featured the aforementioned full moon, at least five bats in flight, two raccoons heading out for a night on the town, more than six deer, rabbits a-plenty, and a steady chorus of amorous frogs.  Here are my snaps from the trip:

Bicycling by the light of the full moon on a hot night in July. Does it get any better than this?
