Still trying to get 3-4 rides in a week, but now the sun is rising so late in the morning that I have a hard time riding and getting to work on time. While I was able to get several long rides and rides later in the morning (as mom and pop were visiting and I took some vacation days), I still went out and purchased a bike light this weekend.
I had looked online. The options were bewildering. So I decided I would support my local bike shop. There were basically two choices, a 100 and a 200 lumen LED light kit. Each kit would give a single light and two flashing patterns. I don’t really care for the flashing lights, I need to see the side of the road!
So I opted for the lower lumen kit. I used it for the first time this morning, worked pretty good. It will take some getting used to, as I can clearly see the edge of the road and obstacles in my path, but my eyes and brain need to stop making up things I can’t clearly see – those things just outside the cast of the light kit.
