Biking in the rain

One of the things I lost was my headlight on my bike1. At first, I thought it was at my work after falling out of my bag, but it’s not there. Maybe it fell out of my bag on the bus. Regardless, I think I need to chalk it up to being lost in the void. I suppose I should head off to a bike shop and pick up a new light, because that bike path I go down every night is a bitch without one. Actually, that bike path I go down every night is kind of a bitch regardless of the light. I get oncoming freeway traffic, whose headlights blind me for a large part of the ride. Tonight I was biking in the rain, which makes visibility even worse.

As a side note, last night was the first time since I started biking at night down that bike path that I crossed someone else using the path. It was a couple walking their two dogs. The dogs barked at me and since it was dark and I didn’t have a light, I almost hit them.

1. The other thing was my ipod shuffle, which I accidently left in goldfischegirl‘s car

Dude, that path would SUCK without a light. And in the rain? You're either much ballsier or much dumber than most.

I'm going to go with ballsier. It's much closer to the truth.

Get a light, bro. Soon.

I'm going to be looking into a new light, but the thing is, the light I had before did not help with visibility for the most part. Well, in that one section that goes downhill and is under the shade of trees, it helped but along the freeway when i'm already blind by the incoming traffic it doesn't help at all. I got to shop around for something.
