With Daylight savings time having ended on Sunday, that leaves a lot of commuters riding in the dark. There’s a misconception that reflectors, which are mandatory in most states, are enough for us to be seen. I usually turn to www.sheldonbrown.com, one of the most complete websites about bikes and cycling for information. He has an interesting article on why riding with reflectors alone can be hazardous to your health. (Click here for the article).
As for me, I ride with a Lightman rear blinkie
AND a Cateye LED Safety Light attached to my helmet.
On the front, I ride with the Princeton Tec Corona Extreme
and a Cateye EL410 safety light.
Do I look like a geek with all them lights? If it gets me home safe, who cares…
