A change is as good as a rest as they say and pedalling back down NCR 5 and the Canal was just what the Doctor ordered. As is usual I didn’t see a soul from the minute I got onto NCR 5 all the way until I got off the cut at Smethwick.
I got myself a new front light for the winter dark mornings as my old front light had died. I got one that was recommended to me as good enough for towpath bashing, this one.
Plenty bright enough for the canal and NCR 5, indeed, it’s scarily bright for such a small unit. I’d recommend it as fit for purpose for the cut, maybe not quite good enough for serious night MTBing if you get a lick on, but fine for my towpath pedalling.
Easy fit, easy charge and easy to use. You have a choice of helmet or bike mount too. I’ve bar mounted mine as I have my Muvi cam on my lid.
I’m looking forward to a week’s commuting along the cut away from the traffic, which after the last couple of weeks of poor morale is a bonus.
