I have been on leave for a few weeks and have not needed to commute to work. Now I'm ready to hop on the bike again, but when I leave for work it is now dark out. I have all the reflectors req by law, a front white LED and a rear blinky but I'm still worried about getting schmucked by someone not expecting a bike to be on the road at 6:00 am in the fall while its dark out. What other precautions should I take?
I'm thinking reflective tape on my jacket and wheels (between the spokes) and maybe an additional light-set for my helmet. Anything else I should do? Any suggestions for a light with lots of time on the battery? I don't want to go through batteries every 3 days. (30 min use per day)
