Be Seen On Your Bike - Bicycle Safety


Safety should always be a priority for any road-user, and that of course includes cyclists. While there are many safety tips that we can offer you, the single most important way to improve your safety is to make sure that other users are able to see you, by using high visibility gear.

One of the easiest ways to increase your visibility is to wear reflective strips on your clothing and also place them on your bike. These will reflect the light given off by car headlamps and make it easier for drivers to see you. Those strips that clip to your trousers are particularly effective, as seen from behind that bob up and down, which is sure to make you more noticeable to drivers. Some big advantages of reflective strips include that don't need batteries, that they are relatively cheap, and that there is little risk of them being stolen. However, one thing to remember is that you should occasionally give your reflective get strips a quick wipe, as they won't reflect much light if covered with dirt.

You should also consider getting a reflective Sam Browne belt (a belt which goes round you waist but has a diagonal strap that goes over your shoulder). Worn on top of clothing, this greatly increases your visibility! If you carry a rucksack however, this will obscure part of the belt, so in this case you might stick some reflective strips on the back of your racksack.

Finally, one last place to add visibility to, is your helmet. This is important as if cycling through stationary or slow-moving cars, your head may well be the only part of you that is even potentially visible. Choosing a light-colored helmet will certainly make you more noticeable, but for extra visibility you could either get a reflective band that goes around your helmet, or get small LED lights that attach to your helmet.

Here is some reflective cycling gear:

  • MULTI-FUNCTIONAL: Perfect for running, cycling & all outdoor activities; zip pocket holds essentials.
  • DURABLE: Excellent quality that holds up over time.
Product Description:
Running through the woods and running through a busy, crowded neighborhood are two different things. A reflective vest with glow lines or reflective lines can help you stand out from the crowd, warn approaching cars and keep you safe when you run or walk. This reflective vest and the free band painted yellow with breathable mesh and its soft fabric is not restrictive by any means, letting you move freely, breathe and sweat with ease. You won't even realize that you are wearing a vest. Best of all, rated at 400 candlepower, it will alert cyclists, drivers and fellow runners at 200 meters distance from you, whether you run in the evening, early at dawn or even late at night. There are large reflective patches on the waist and chest with strips running across the shoulders to increase visibility in fog and pitch black darkness. The vest itself is designed with an X shape such that it hangs loosely on your chest without cramping up the 360 degree movement of your shoulders. Unlike other vests that are heavy and restricting, this reflective lightweight vest manages to hug the body tight without ever giving you a suffocating feeling. This is possible because of the use of Velcro straps to secure the vest onto your body. Easy to wear, with adjustable straps and loads of reflective patches, it's a vest designed for serious runners. This reflective vest comes with a pair of reflective bands that you can wear on your wrists to improve visibility in the night. They too are lightweight and made from only the best quality fabrics. Included as a free gift to customers, the color matches with the vest itself and completes your running kit. You may also opt to use it as wrist bands for tennis and other wrist intensive sports.
