Road Bike Safety Light

With winter approaching fast, and the recent change in time, it seems quite natural to start my first article on the blog of Baroudeurs, by talking about the lighting.

In this article, I will avoid running out of light, and thus try to enlighten you to understand its operation and interest.

Road Bike Safety Light 1

Let There be Light ! And There was Light

While many cyclists prefer to invest in a Home Trainer in order to ride the hot, this is where the lighting makes sense, allowing to overcome the dark to continue driving safely. But all the lights are not equal, it is important to choose the right light if we want to roll long night. Whether in the morning, that there was fog, snow, heavy rain (especially here) which passes through a tunnel in the dark or at night, all cyclists are gray. Almost.
And a cyclist that is indistinguishable from, and although it is a cyclist in danger!

See and be seen is more than regulation, it is simply vital…

 Road Bike Safety Light 2

Many believe that we do not need lighting because we are seen by public lighting, shop windows, or simply because it is not dark. But a cyclist without lights are not visible. You should know that in 2013, 17% of fatal accidents of cyclists occurred the night after road safety.

Next to the power of the lights of cars or motorcycles, the cyclist is actually very disadvantaged by the low power and the unreliability of its assets lighting.

Road Bike Safety Light 3

We all know the typical example when driving in night car and we want to pass a cyclist with a yet adequate lighting, but that you come across a car with its headlights on at the same time, it is then indistinguishable both the rider that if we followed a car or a motorcycle. Is not it?

The two photos below were taken from an urban car headlights on. The rider sees the street and cars, but motorists will not see the cyclist in time if it is not properly equipped.
