Riding at night and the unseen...

Well, nearly every night I grab my 29er and take my dogs out for their nightly run. But last night was a bit different, I have not ridden my 36er but once or twice in the last few months so I figured it was time to blow off the dust and off I went rolling through the hood on the lighted streets and then decided since I knew the bike trail it would be no problem riding the curvy trail in the dark...Well, I was wrong, sort of. I was feeling good picking up speed loving the little curves right up to the point that I hooked a turn to exit the bike trail and hit a patch of mud on the paved trail from all the rain we have had and the easiest way to say it is unicycles and sliding sideways like your on a speedway don't go together, as I spun around some how the back of my thigh got strangely caught by my T-7 handle and left me with a crazy cut and blue swollen thigh. Cant figure out how the handle bar got the back of my leg but I guess it could have been worse so beware of the unseen when riding at night.

LOL - funny. The wound, probably not so much.

Ouch. It sounds like you had quite an adventure. I just came in from a quick ride though between the moon and the snow covered ground it was surprisingly bright on the open trail.
