OK people. We changed the clocks a couple of weeks ago. It is getting dark really early and it isn't going to change anytime soon.
PUT SOME LIGHTS ON YOUR BIKES!
As much as we all like to get upset at motorists for not seeing us, it isn't a good idea to make it even worse for them (and us).
I write this because on my way home tonight I saw probably 20 cyclists on one of the roads I drove. Of them, 2 had lights! 10%! None of them could be easily seen in the dark. I was looking for bikes because it is a really popular route, but even with me paying a lot of attention there were several riders I just could not see until I was almost on them.
Lights are cheap, they are easy to install and they are important! So put them on your bike and use them!
