During term times im at univeristy, but at holidays like christmas i go back and stay with my parents, so couldnt take my bike with me :-( But this evening i went on my first ride of 2008 after my christmas break Ive not been cycling very long, maybe around 3 months or so but when i first went to buy a bike and accessories, i knew i had to get lights to be seen at night. And a fair deal of recent conversation has proved lights are often a well known thing to go on bikes, so not a mad assumption for me to make? But out on my 10mile round trip i passed at least 4 cyclists with no lights on cycling on the pavements in only low lit areas. This was followed by one young lady who was riding with no reflectors and no lights on a fold up bike in the gutter of an unlit road. If it wasnt for my front lights i might not have seen her till much later. As i went passed her i kindly and with as little rudeness as possible reminded her that she needed lights by law and she seemed to stare at me blankly as if i was a ghost or something (with my new front light, dual 1/2watt smarts glowing red hot and in a high viz shirt on Do you often run into people like this? Do you say anything?
