Bicycle commutes look much different during daytime! About a year ago, my whole bicycle commuting world was turned upside down. I started a new job that was 5 miles away instead of 2.5 miles. The roads looked different. The scenery looked different. Heck, everything looked different.
Even the bicycle that I was commuting on was different. I had just received a brand new Tern Link D8 from NYCEWheels. (I sure do miss that bike shop)
Most of my commutes were during the day, but there was a few nights out of the week that I had to commute during the night. Every Monday and Friday, I had to do my bicycle commute during the night time.
At the time I wasn’t so sure how the Tern folding bike would work out because I wasn’t familiar with the brand.
In the past, Tern had some problems with frames snapping, and after reading banter on the internet, I was worried that my Tern Link D8 might do the same.

Bicycle commutes can seem very intimidating at first, especially when you aren’t familiar with the route. Maybe your aren’t familiar with the streets, and don’t know where to go. Maybe you don’t know how safe the neighborhood is, or how safe it is to ride your bicycle. It’s possible there aren’t any bicycle lanes or smooth sidewalks to ride on.
Now add some night time riding to the mix and things only become much more complex.
Seeing that I no longer have to ride this bicycle route, especially at night, I wanted to bring you along to see what I use to deal with.
