I started riding my bike to work this summer. It's only 2 miles away, and I drop my son off at daycare along the way (I keep the trailer with me for the whole ride). The ride is all in the city, along quiet neighborhood streets, a nicely separated sidewalk along a busy street, and a bike trail. I have a flexible schedule and live so close to work that I'll never have to leave before sunrise. But with fall coming on, I'm feeling a bit uncomfortable in the morning, especially on cloudy days like this one. In fact, I'm working from home a short while this morning to let the light increase a little bit before heading in.
I'm so new to this...I don't know what I need. I was looking at lights yesterday, and I think some are overkill for my situation. For me, it's more of a "see me and the trailer" situation. Unfortunately, I'm short, so for lighting in the back all I can fit on my seat post is a single blinkie. I'd appreciate any advice on what sort of setup would work.
