    I just spend the last two days there. Cold wet and grey.
    I wore long pants, long sleeve, a fleece and light rain coat. Wool socks are nice.

    If a cyclist is saying that exclusively about motorists then it is unnecessarily condescending to them, self centered and unproductive as far as sharing the road goes.

    A few reasons
    1. As to lights in other drivers eyes, that is an aggressive move that only servers to disorient. In the context of this thread we are talking about adult cyclists. It doesn't need...

    While I've never had an issue seeing around corners in the darkest of rural nights with no streetlights, I agree using a helmet light is great if that helps you.


    This should be illegal. You are...

    The only cyclists lights I ever have issue with are the helmet mounted ones.
    One only needs light for the roadway ahead, not to look at other drivers and blind them.
