Visibility to passing motorists has become more critical than ever when road riding. There are many reasons why. The percentage of motor vehicle accidents caused by distracted driving is at an all-time high. Plus, as we get deeper into the fall/winter seasons, the days get shorter, and the chances of riding in low-light situations increase. Early fall is a crucial time to pay attention to the shortening days. Adding visibility is simple. First, a good set of lights both front and rear is a great starting point. A good set of lights does not have to break the bank, but there are plenty of options in all price ranges. Things to look for include battery type, lumens, and ease of mounting/dismounting. The second way to add visibility is clothing. Look for fosforescent colors like safety yellow or orange. Also look for 3M™ Scotchlite Reflective to be placed on the clothing in visibile areas. The third way to add safety while road riding does not alert passing motorists, it alerts the rider. The Garmin™ Varia Radar system uses a sonar like system that will notify the rider when a car is approaching from behind. This system adds great peace of mind when cycling on the roads in all situations whether it be city riding or rural. With proper visibilty efforts, cycling on the road can be fun and a little less worriesome.
