Last week I wrote about the dangers at every intersection. Cyclists can tell you that they’re most vulnerable when making turns and crossing intersections. Following basic traffic rules can help, but that isn’t always enough to keep you safe. This is even more true at night – you can wear bright clothes and use lights to increase visibility.
Down Low Glow is one more way to increase visibility. Good cyclists wear blinkies on the front and back of their bikes to help drivers see them, but these do not provide visibility where it can count the most – through intersections. And while they might look like you are trying to Trick your Trike, you’ll have the last laugh if it helps you stay alive.
