Want to be seen on the road?
Being seen and being safe is a prerequisite for any cyclist. I write this only the day after I witnessed a young woman knocked off her bike by a car pulling out of a side road. The conditions were clear, bright and dry, yet the driver just didn't see her. Luckily she was ok, but it goes to show that drivers are not in the mindset for looking out for cyclists at the best of times, so when the weather turns in or it is getting dark, how can you best make yourself stand out?
On a recent visit to my local bike shop I was surprised at how much dark winter clothing was available, probably created more for fashion rather than visibility. If you wear darker clothing and you cycle on dull days, at dusk or in the dark, one important aspect to look for is how much reflective material is on your kit. This has far more impact than the yellow or orange colour of high viz. Note that reflective strips are also white.
White, yellow and orange stand out the most but white will always be the brightest colour you can wear. Enjoy your rides and stay safe!
