Psst! SF Bike Expo this weekend! I’ll see you there Saturday.
Blinky bike lights — are they more annoying than helpful? What do you say?
I caught up to a rider at a red light on Central Expressway the other day with three Planet Bike Superflash lights flashing away, including a helmet mounted light at my eye level. He rode at a comfortable pace for me so I stayed a couple of bike lengths back. I’m not prone to seizures, but after a couple of minutes I felt nauseous, and this was in daylight.
The next important decision: drop back? or pass?
(Of course I passed.)
I generally ride with my rear lights in flash mode, but I’m rethinking that now.
