I am a day commuter. But I'm working this Saturday from 4:30pm until about 11pm. Right now I'm planning on biking it home after work.
I have lights and a reflective jersey. I'm wondering what you folks do to feel safer when riding after dark, especially on a weekend evening when the average blood alcohol levels are slightly elevated. I feel like I'm going to be terrified every time a car approaches from behind, especially on the 2-lane, no shoulder, 45mph part of the trip.
Or should I forget about it and beg for a ride, or call a cab?
