With temperatures falling, the reduction of ticks and leaves changing color, fall is a great time to hit the trails on your mountain bike (or trail running if that is what you are in to). Trail conditions can be more favorable for riding too, as the air is drier and tends to retain moisture better. This is where the term “hero dirt” comes in to play. Hero dirt has good traction and Oklahoma trails are full of hero dirt during these months. It is important to layer your clothing for riding during the fall months. Fall also means the trails are less crowded and night rides begin with the shorter fall days. Our personal favorite trails for night riding are at Lake Stanley Draper. Below, singletracks.com lists their recommendations for the 9 best mountain bike lights for night rides. Any of our great local bike shops can help with the right gear
