My first (on purpose and properly equipped) night ride! I’ve never felt so inspired to keep up with the rider in front of me as when I was pedaling my butt off in an attempt to escape a vicious raccoon shaped alien t-Rex bush creature thing in the dark.
Other riders confirmed presence of various non-human life forms.
Aside from nearly dying of fright, the actual riding part was awesome!
Any other outdoorsy peeps out there who suddenly lose their minds in the dark woods?
I seriously can’t be reasonable or think when I’m so irrationally terrified, and logic is no help at all!
Why have I never overcome this simple thing?!?! It interferes with my fun!
Can I be hypnotized into getting over it?
