Today was a bright sunny day my bike is a darker color so I wear reflectant across my backpack, and helmet and run a large blinky on the back of the bike.
So while waiting at a light a company van driver pulls up along side and hails me. He was an older retired no-nonsense look'n guy. Said... "Hey! You'd really get better visibility if the reflectant was on your rear end"
The light changed, and I smiled and thanked him. That took some real guts to say that! He's right. In a perfect world, the jerseys, shorts, helmets gloves would all be made of reflectant The bike's should have reflectant embedded in the paint also.
Any insight on this?
