    Nice picture of early morning ride. It seems to show a variety of headlights and taillights. Any consensus on the best ones?

    PS: You guys really know how to keep local eateries in business! 🙂

      Keeping local eateries in business seems to be our raison d’etre!

      We haven’t had a conversation about which lights are the best. Rechargeables are much more prevalent that cell battery powered ones.

      I’ve worked my way through a number of different headlights over the years. My current favourite is a Garmin Varia 500. It pairs with my Garmin Edge bike computer so I can turn it on and off, and change modes – flash, solid, high beam or low beam, from the Edge touch screen. It attaches to the underneath of the Edge mount, which saves handlebar room. It is plenty bright and casts a wide beam. The best headlight I have ever used.

      Those back roads are indeed very nice to ride along. If I can coax myself out of bed early enough I will explore more of the roads in that area tomorrow.
