    This isn't intended to pi$$ anyone off, but I think I've hit a record of 6 miles without any lights, 2 roundabouts that are always empty.

    Its a pretty smooth run with the exception of me being late and hitting the school traffic.

    Can anyone beat 6 miles no lights??
  2. What a naughty person! Get thee to Arches office for a proper spanking!

    If Arch isn't there Brock might be deputising. :wacko:

    Well, I've been 12 miles with no lights...then again, it was broad daylight and I didn't need them. :wacko:
  6. I rode from Oxford to Hereford in the dark in pissing rain into a head wind in December with only a pair of 'Wonder-lights', does that count?

    I can do just about 4.5 miles without coming across a set of traffic lights. If I got a bit more involved with routing I might be able to extend that. Let me go have a play on the map.

    Looks like I could get that to 7.8 miles with a bit of effort...

    Hold on a minute, is it just me or is there a little confusion in this thread :wacko:

    Are we talking no lights, as in no traffic lights, or no lights as in the cateye/ayup variety?

    Oh. I read the OP and thought it meant finding a route that had no traffic lights, and I was going to say go to Orkney, they don't have a single set on the whole archipeligo.

    If it's riding without lights for 6 miles (in the dark), that's very naughty. And being Tuesday, I have my whip with me... (well, I would have, but I left it at the stables last week, but I have it in spirit...):evil:

    For me with no bike lights and no traffic lights, 200yards maybe?

    London sucks.

  14. If its the distance before Traffic lights I only get 1.5 miles after leaving my flat, after then the lights are more frequent.

    If its the distance without bike lights in the dark. I push the bike through the close without them on but that only be 20 yrds or so.
