I made it home in one piece, safe and sound without incident, but it did make me think about folks who regularly ride in the dark (both the morning and evening hours). Do you ever worry about hitting something you simply don't see in the dark? Have you ever struck anything that caused you to wobble or fall? While potential debris isn't going to keep me from riding, there is a very small part of me that does wonder what would happen if I hit the wrong spot. I try to go slower during these hours, but I'm not sure slowing would necessarily prevent a run-in with an unseen pothole or giant boulder in the path. The biggest thing I've hit has been a decent-sized rock, and that almost caused a tip (of course I'm incredibly klutzy as it is, so I'm probably not the best judge of such things). I'd love to hear your experiences or how you have dealt with potential unseen road debris.
