I spend most weekends at my friend's house out in Loxahatchee, Florida which is about 35 miles from my apartment in Boynton Beach. He lives right across the street from 60,000 acres of JW Corbett Wildlife Management Area.
I do a bit of trail running and mountain biking out in the Florida wilderness. We are going into the hot and humid summer of south Florida, so this time of year I try to get my workouts in either early morning or later in the evening.
I often start my workouts very early, before sunrise, or later in the day as the sun is starting to set. I have a road bike, mountain bike and cyclocross bike and don't have the $ to buy 3 different bike lights. I've been looking for a bike light that was rugged, yet easy enough to switch between bikes.
Let Me See the Light
LumeneX was kind enough to send me one of their bike lights to test out and review for the Bike Diva blog. The light has 2 parts - a small flash light that gets attached to the front of your bike near the handle bars, and a small red tail light. Both lights use one of those flat watch/hearing aid type batteries.
The LumeneX bike light is exactly what I was looking for. It's light weight, battery operated, and easy to switch between bikes. The front light is adjustable from a wide beam of light to a fine pinpoint of light, depending on where you are using it. I use the wide beam setting when biking on roads and the pinpoint beam while riding on the trails.
