Now that it is fall and the days are getting shorter, it is even more important for me to make sure that I am able to ride my bike safely during my commute. With it being dark in the morning as I am riding to work, I have to do whatever I can to make it so that drivers can see me. Too often bicyclists get hit by cars just because they aren’t visible to the drivers.
To prevent this sort of problem, I make sure that I wear a lot of bright colors and some different reflectors as well. I have also put some different lights on my bike so that the bicycle itself is something that drivers are most likely to see. Bicycle tire lights have been especially good for this since these are very bright and obvious even on a dark and rainy morning.
With so many great safety lights all around my bike, it is wonderful for me to be able to ride to work in the morning. I don’t have to worry nearly the same way about what might happen to me when I am riding. Staying seen and making it to work with ease is wonderful especially when I know that I am getting exercise each morning.
