Sometimes it is a little tricky to be seen by other road users. We recommend that you always #ridebright whenever you’re on your bike….day AND night!
Here are some tips to help you be seen.
- Ensure the rear and front reflectors are intact and not obscured
- Make sure your rear red light and front white light are functioning correctly and have adequate power supply – you can always use them day and night
- Choose quality lights that can be also be seen from the sides
- Wear highly visible clothing that will contrast with your surroundings.
- Think about clothing that has reflective properties especially at night
When riding in hazardous weather, dusk, dawn or dark conditions, a bicycle must have:
– a front light showing an unbroken or a flashing white beam that is clearly visible from 200 metres
– a rear light showing an unbroken or flashing red beam that is clearly visible from 200 metres
Remember, to aim your lights in such a ways as to prevent blinding oncoming riders, pedestrians or vehicles.
