Went for a ride this morning and saw (or didn't see) several cyclists with very dull rear lights - just reminding everyone to check the performance of their lights - it might save you a serious…Continue
With the news that Glenelg and other western councils have missed out on a TDU event, does that mean that the TDU is reserved for the eastern suburbs and country towns. I understand that there could…Continue
"I have been quite annoyed at times by riders with super-bright bar-mounted headlamps following just to the right of my line with their headlights at the same height as my mirror. Either pass or follow my line a bit further back. "
"Helmet lights were banned from Pedal Prix some years ago. Because the cars have mirrors, helmet lights were a major problem for drivers in front, particularly when the wearer of the light became fatigued and his/her head started to wobble."
"Wouldn't they be BETTER on helmets? Light on bars are less likely to be turned away when someone is approaching. Easy to turn your head.
The thing that annoys *me* is the super-bright-daylight handlebar lights... in rapid flash mode. Felt like…"
"Bright lights on helmets should be banned unless you are mountain biking. I'm the poor guy coming down the freeway path at 630 and idiots are riding up with their lights blinding me. The people who look away or dim their lights are very much in…"
"I saw a cyclist on Henley Beach Rd last night around 5:45pm which is well and truly dark this time of year, with no lights, front or back. I was going to yell some advice out to him but figure he might be a future Darwin Award candidate."
"I encountered 3 ninja cyclists on the ride home last night along Linear Park. Crazy nutters.
Drove to work this morning and I lost count of the number of cars I saw without lights on. Seriously, I could barely see out the front windshield, what…"
"I almost got taken out twice by people turning right into driveways today, despite having a front light (rated at 100Lu in flash mode) and a flouro yellow helmet cover, while riding a flouro bike on predominantly very quiet roads. Being bright is a…"
"http://www.monkeylectric.com/ <--- can buy direct from them and there is one supplier in Australia listed on their website. I have backed their latest creation - the monkey light pro (video) where it covers the whole wheel and you can put…"
"cool! I like - where can we get 'em?
having been serially blinded by handlebar floodlights on my way home down the linear park last night, not so keen on the handlebar idea.... unless the user has the acuity to turn them down on bike paths :)"
"I have a pretty standard front light, a thunderbolt rear red light (this thing is insannnnnnely good, doesnt blind but lights up the road behind you real nice) and a monkey light on my front wheel which works wonders for cars turning out of a street…"
"I noticed a comment on the YouTube video, by someone who had an avatar of a car - I can't wait to see how close I can get my front wheels to the red lines without sending you flying.
How typical of their mentality..."
