Yesterday there was an alert for strong solar activity and last night I saw the northern lights from my balcony in the city so I decided I would grab my bike and have a ride up to the top of the hill outside the city so that there was no light and no people and just for a bit of an adventure!
My bike light was completely out of battery so I charged it for about 30mins before I went out but the connection to charge it is a bit dodgy so I had no idea if it was charging or not and couldnt wait any longer so just went out, it had some charge at least. I went to the viewpoint up above my house where you can see the whole city but there was like 10 people there and the bright streetlights meant you could hardly see much anyway. I decided I would try and go up to Geitfjellet which has an open rocky flat top and you can see for miles in ever direction. Off I went with no lights on and just trying to get my eyes used to the darkness so I could ride without a light and I would try and save my light for the way back down it kind of worked but it was really difficult and as soon as I went into any trees I had to put some light on as it was too dark.
