"Night Mountain Biking" With Ben Stiller

Ben Stiller says "night mountain biking" reminded him of Apocolypse Now. But for me his hysterical description—"one of the most frightening experiences of my life," complete with "a Lacross helmet with miner's lights" and that "CamelBak slurp thing"—is more reminiscent of Tom Cruise's climbing Vaudeville routine in Mission Impossible 2. Admittedly, first time night riding can be a challenge, especially if you don't frequent a bike. But can anyone even tell me what a "girl's mountain bike" is? Good stuff.
