I saw this cyclist on Scott Boulevard / Arques Avenue in Santa Clara / Sunnyvale last night. I think this video seems to show the reflective ankle straps are the most noticeable things about her, but in real life I first saw the blinking Planet Bike Superflash tail lights.
The top light was a little bit askew on her backpack, but it was still reasonably eye catching. Next was her purple shorts (maybe she works at Yahoo?), then the ankle straps and finally the yellow jacket. I only noticed the jogging vest with the reflective strips tucked her backpack as I passed her. In any case, she was very visible to me and I hope the passing motorists.
Me, I had my two front lights, a pair of taillights, and a single reflective strap on my right pant leg to keep it out of the chain. I’e also retained the spoke reflectors on my bike. I think my jacket might have some reflective piping on it, as do my shoes. Otherwise, I wore normal clothing last night — the same brown polyester slacks and green fleece shirt that I wore at the office during the day.
Here’s the Strava track of last night’s ride.
