I'd love to hear your feedback on the following: Cars and traffic to me are a no issue. I've worked as a bike messenger in Manhattan and have ridden plenty on public roads.......and I am comfortable riding at night. I use a rear Planet Bike light, I have a one LED "Beamer" as a dedicated strobe and two hard points to attach my two main lights. But a serious fear of mine is riding at night on the right shoulder of road that is curving to the right. I can envision getting clipped and see it as the most susceptable place to be on the road at night (Even in the day actually).
What do you guys recommend? The only solution that I can think would help lessen the possiblity of this is having a dedicated light that is facing left towards the road and shining a beam onto the right lane that would be seen before you are. I'm planning a shorter distance tour and would definately like to put miles in during the night.
