There is nothing like riding at night. Nothing awakens the senses like it. And yet very few cyclists have had the privilege of ruling the streets at night. In fact, when we arranged the first ever night ride around Girona, Spain, half of our group had not experienced cycling at night. That caught us off guard, but when you think about it, until Métier, why would you be drawn to cycling at night?
Working with local Girona luminary, Therese Sundstrom, Métier wanted to conduct its first ever night ride at one of the homes of cycling. The call was put out. A group of riders met at Cafe Federal at dusk, and then off we set for a 25km route circling the city. The first ever legion of Métier luminaries on a night ride in Girona.
“Different challenges, different things to look out and listen for and, to be honest, a completely different feel for the bike…”
It’s the time of day we are least prepared for… until now. Interestingly, the roads feel like a very different place. Different challenges, different things to look out and listen for and, to be honest, a completely different feel for the bike in this context. The world is a very different place at night.
