The Phoenix night biking problem

Posted Oct 28 2012 4:43pm
Bob, after the recent Jerry Seinfeld show in downtown Phx.  Note the NiteRider Mako 3.0 on his handlebar.  His B&M headlamp was burned out so we attached battery lighting.
Bob and I were about to leave for the gym the other night but discovered that his tire was completely flat, apparently the result of a section of street we passed earlier in the week with a lot of broken glass.  So we hopped in the the Element and drove to our exercise.  Ho-hum.  Along the way, he commented on the surprising number of people biking busy city streets without any lighting on either the front or back of their bikes.  I'm not one to perseverate on the "dangers" dangers of cycling but good grief, would they drive after dark with out head and tail lights?

Because the B&M headlamp was dim, we added the Nite Rider Mako 3.0.  180 degree of visibility!
Seems like quite a risk you consider how relatively inexpensive bike lighting really is.  Planet Bike lighting provides a lot of bang for often less than $15.  As we were having this chat, a guy on a bike pulled up next to us at the light with no lighting and wearing ear pods.  I'm just going to make a declaration here: even dumber!

Waiting at a light in busy Saturday night traffic. The rear red tail light is indispensable.
