Recently Iâ€™ve been trying to do some practice in the local car park before work a couple of times a week. Normally I wait till it is light, around 6:30am, but this morning I went out at about 6am, when it was still quite dark. The first thing I noticed was that I was concentrating on looking at the small area of road lit up by my light rather than looking further ahead like I usually try to do when riding during the day. I tried to start consciously looking ahead but my eyes kept darting back to the area I could see, after all, what if there was a pothole or other obstacle on the road that I couldnâ€™t see further in the distance and could only see when I was practically on top of it? Is this what you are meant to do when riding when it is dark? Look ahead but then keep glancing to just in front of the bike? Or do you just have faith that the road surface is likely to be good and keep looking further ahead? I tried searching for tips regarding riding at night but all I could find were discussions on coping with glare and lights coming towards you. This is more an issue of there not being enough light to begin with. Oh, I will try hi-beam next time, didnâ€™t think of it this morning, but even with this on I suspect I would still not look as far ahead as I would during the day. Thanks for any advice.
