This morning I had to drive to work. This time it was worth it. I passed a cyclist that had a nice little red blinker on the back and a smallish white blinker on the front. This was around 5am.
I did see him but it made me wonder. Am I being seen? Have I done enough? I saw this guy but I got pretty close before I saw him AND I was wide awake. What about the people who are still groggy in the morning?
I have a PBSF on my helmet and an older Vista (yellow) blinker on the rear rack. Also a 6W halogen on the front and lots of reflective tape. I feel like a Christmas tree but I really don't know what OTHER people see.
So...tonight's project is to have my younger son ride my bike so I can see what other people see. I think that will let me know for sure if I'm being seen the way I think I'm being seen.
Ever done that?
