Out of the World Cool

Seems like lately lots of talk is going on about how motorists and cyclists can get along better. I'm sure this conversation has been going on for a long, long time and I'm just seeing it more now that I'm tuned in to the channels that are having the discussion. I agree wholeheartedly with Mia Birk; cyclists need to obey the rules of the road if they want to be taken seriously. Running red lights, riding against traffic, and not using turn signals can add up to someone getting hurt, most often the cyclist.

I'm a huge fan of cyclists doing everything within their power to be as safe as possible. I wear bright colors so motorists can see me better. I use signals to let motorists know which direction I'm going to turn. I stop at all red lights and stop signs. And now, to help with visibility even more, Hubby bought and installed this light on my bike for me. I think it's the bomb-diggity.

So cool!

Road test! What's it look like at night? From a car view? And yes, it is striking in its coolness.
