Through those darker months of the year, shorter days and longer nights make finding time to skate a challenge. For some of us though, skating in the morning or at night can be far more advantageous, given our work and social lives.
Skating in the morning allows us to kick start things and energise ourselves for the day, whilst commuting to work and ticking that daily exercise box. Skating at night relieves any pent up stress from the day, whilst commuting home and building up your appetite for dinner.
Night skating also allows us the time to skate together with our friends and get that midweek fix. Whilst skating in the dark can be a liberating and invigorating experience, it is essential to remain safe, become more aware of your surroundings and the conditions. Selecting well lit routes and and also being well lit yourself is the safest option.
