There is a big lump in your throat from dry heaves, lack of water and the unusual warm weather this time of the year. Your legs cry out for the ache to stop but still, it remains for a little while longer. With every turn of the handlebar, your HID light reveals shadows. It watches and creeps around, as you and your buddy glide silently beneath the darkness that cloaks the woods. Nighttime in the woods is the playground for the bogeyman. Since early childhood, we are told to stay away from dark places where bad things happen. Night brings the unknown. It brings trepidation to one's senses. It is the reason why we should be safely at home and in the comforts of our bed.

But for some, nighttime in the woods is an adventure, an exploration of the unfamiliar. It is where you can realize your dreams. Where you can fulfill your urge to sculpt scrumptious singletrack in the cover of darkness. And with your HID light serving as a beacon, it opens a portal to another world of riding.

Thanks for looking and may your bike dreams come true.


Riding a fixed gear bike in the dark require big guns.


A beam of light paved the way.


Your shadow plays tricks on you.


Drevil took off like a ghost after mounting his fixed gear beast.


Searching for the bogeyman.


Concentrating on the task at hand.


Fatigue from night riding is, by far, the best pillow.

wow... great pics. I tried to take nightriding pics... once. they were so bad I never tried again. I appreciate that those are difficult shots.

you should make a calendar of bike pics. it should have sunrise and sunset on each day. i really want to do this. you could just generate a pdf and email it, because it depends on your location.

Beautiful work again, Mugg

You have a great passion for photo.

Drevil must be one of the most recognized mtb'ers in recent history.
I think he has surpassed Pineapple Bob at least.

Absolute Bikes

Hey I noticed the Absolute Bikes Jersey in the picture, are these photos from AZ or Colorado. I bought my first two bikes from Shawn at the Flag store before he moved to Colorado.

Awesome pics as usual!
One thing though - Is that a 26er is see Mr. "I'm selling off all my 26" stuff cuz if it ain't got 29" I ain't gonna ride it" (aka Drevil)?
That's my eleven year old Yo Eddy that I will never sell off. She's old, creaky, and relegated to fixie duties now.

So, know anything about this?
