    Got knocked off towards the end of last year, which has put me off cycling in the dark - just wondered when it be light enough to go out in the evenings after work -

    Not before the clocks change at my latitude. (West Sussex)

    The dark didn't knock you off the bike - a careless driver did - and they are out in daylight too.

    It might be quite bright tonight as it is a super moon.

    As above, I'd assume after clocks go forwards, not before

    This, the dark had nothing to do with my being knocked off

    Fine theory. Bottom line its put me off cycling in the dark. So my question point still stands.

    I'd urge you to apply a touch more rationality to the situation.

    When I got taken out on a winter's commute home it stopped me riding in the dark. The antidote to this was a combination of silly reflective clothes, over-bright lights, and joining in with a certain class of loon on a Friday night to ride silly distances to take breakfast by the sea. On these rides I listened to the wisdom of others and realised the stupid clothes and the retinal burns where utterly superfluous to my safety and that the dark per se was not my enemy and that riding down a country c-road in the dark was anyway infinitely preferable to standing around on Three Bridges station in the cold and wet waiting for yet another missed connection.
