    Greetings from Montclair, NJ

    I am an early morning rider of the busy suburban streets of Montclair, Glen Ridge, South Orange, Cedar Grove, Orange and surrounding areas.
    My main concerns are safety and fun biking in the dark (usually around 5:30 - 6:30AM) during warm weather and in cold down to the low 30s. My biggest fear is the occasional near miss with an ulit, dark-clad jogger running in the traffing lanes of Ridgewood avenue in the pre-dawn dark. My greatest pleasure is a smooth road, legs pumping, crystal clear spring ride.
    My ride is an old TREK 400 from the early 80s with the original light blue / yellow lettering.

    I find that using mirrors helps in traffic.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Sounds like you need a brighter headlight so you'll see those joggers that think that just because they can see a car, everyone can see them.

    Stop by the 50+ forum and introduce yourself to the old farts that hang around there.
