I am a lone rider (woman) who is out in the wilds of eastern WA state for 50+ milers routinely. I ride prepared--extra tube, tire, tools, cell phone (tho most often am out of range), and since I have developed a bee sting allergy, and Epi-pen. I will be commuting at night soon, too, and have decided to invest in some illuminite clothing. Other commuters here wear it, and it glows....

As far as safety, I am lucky (or not!) and ride a trail to an from work. I have never ridden it at night, so it is with some trepidation that I will be riding this fall. Bear spray sounds like a grand idea.

So I will be following this thread with interest......can anyone recommend a good, lightweight lite set?
