Tips for Riding at Night

Pedaling at night is a delight, especially on hot summer nights. The sun is gone, the temperature is pleasant and there is more time to enjoy our friends and our bike. But it is also at night that there are more dangers for the cyclist, as the bicycle and cyclist have little visibility in traffic.

Bike Plus shows some important care when it comes to enjoying the evening for the bike ride with family and friends.

Wear light clothing. To wear dark clothes at night to pedal is to camouflage itself in the darkness.

The law requires you to use reflectors on the front, rear and sides of the bike. If you are cautious, it is worth putting extra reflective stickers on your helmet as well.

To further enhance safety, purchase a red flashlight for the back of the bike. For the front of the bike a flashlight with white light, even if it does not satisfactorily illuminate the street, makes you much more visible and prevents pedestrians or cars from crossing your path.

At night the risk of not being seen by a car or pedestrian is great, so transit at lower speed and redouble your attention at intersections and near places with great concentration of pedestrians. Low speed will also prevent you from falling into some hidden hole in the dark.

Sunglasses with yellow lenses help in night vision and lessen glare.

On Friday and Saturday nights, take special care near the nightclubs.

Drunk drivers run over first and apologize later. Beware of them.
