Last night on my run I saw a guy riding his bike with lights all around. I thought that's cool, he's really lit up. It seemed odd to me that as I ran, he seemed to be getting closer. His lights were red, surley he's going AWAY. Nope, rode right passed.<br><br>
I turned to look and as i was thinking he's backward, someones gonna pull out of a side strret seeing red.... Screechhhh..... metal crunching and down he goes. He was going pretty slow when he hit the car and he jumped right up so I assumed he was OK.<br><br>
We are already heated by cagers, let's try and stay safe out there and not send mixed messages.<br><br>

Good point, Sheldon. I didn't know that. I'm going to get lights for my bike this spring, so that I'm more visible. It makes my DH feel better, too.

In this picture, the girl in the center has a white light up front.<br><br>
I would hope someone would see that and take notice regardless of color.<br><br>

You know, I didn't even think about it like that before your post, Sheldon - makes complete sense.<br><br>
I actually did buy some lights for all the riding I was (thought I was anyway...so much for best laid plans) going to do this winter, and luckily enough one is white and the other is red.
