Bicycle lights are an absolute must when riding in the dark. Not only are you able to see more clearly, especially on dark roads, but you are visible to other motorists. Being seen helps you to stay safe. Using other safety equipment like a helmet and visible clothing also help to keep you safe whilst you enjoy your ride whether it be for pleasure or traveling to work. Some lights now have a modern strobe feature, you will certainly not be missed using this mode of flashing light. They can be annoying to motorists but at least they have seen you.
