Merry Christmas and happy “biking” year 2015!
If you are to use your bike and ride in dark winter conditions, as we do here in the north, then some piece of advice worth mentioning.
Equip your bike with a front light! You can find models at a rather decent price from any bike shop. I opted for Moon Meteor 200 lumens. I find it particularly handy as it fixes on the handlebar or onto the helmet. It is also USB rechargeable and I certainly don’t mind the cost (just above 50€). Compared to other lamps I’ve used so far this one has by far the best lightning quality.
In addition to a reflector I also mounted a model designed by Knog, a silicone-based light called Frog strobe. The designers came up with a rather interesting and very funny story telling for this lamp. Anyway it’s a really convenient device which is easy to release from and set to the frame.
So whether you ride on cycling paths or in town, remember to use front and rear lights ! Ooops, it seems I forgot to switch on both lamps…
