Not the sexiest of subjects but the kind of tiny thing that can make a life or death difference.
The back light on my bike (Boardman racer ,not anywhere near as good as the Boardman racer that was nicked while I was queueing for a turkey three Christmases ago) has been dead for days and I thought it was going to be a USB job as so many are these days .
Was going to drop off a birthday cake at my niece’s a couple of miles away tonight but no back light in January ? Will drop it off in daylight tomorrow.
It’s two coin type lithium 2032 batteries and Halfords were out , so online it is .
A front light is irrelevant for a vehicle to see you from behind just as a back light is with vehicles coming towards you.
High vis is great from either direction of course but not a legal requirement whereas front and back lights are.
Be safe , be seen; a cliche of course, but not a cliche to argue with. Especially in January.
If you have been involved in a cycle accident or injury, Cycle Legal is the place to get the best independent advice from cyclists claims solicitors.
