Cyclists: are you bright enough?

28 Nov 2012

Be seen, be safe - plus details of last monthly cycle ride of the year


As winter draws in, making sure that as a cyclist, you can see where you are going and that you can be seen, is critical to having a safe and legal commute. These days lights are cheap, easy to obtain and low drain, meaning batteries last for ages.

And don't forget reflective kit, because most drivers say this is what they see first. You must have a rear reflector on the back of your bike and on your pedals, and ideally you should have a front one. Spoke reflectors mean people can see you side on.
