The part Strava totally got RIGHT, the users you are sharing with don’t need to be Strava users!
Safer activities for athletes, peace of mind for friends and family. Beacon lets Premium athletes share their real-time location during an activity with up to three safety contacts.
This Christmas I purchased myself a CygoLite Metro 300, and have just mounted it on my commuter bike for tomorrow morning. It was a gift to keep myself alive.
Over the last month or two, as the days get dark and rainy, cars have missed my older, and not too bad, headlight, and it has been dicey at times requiring ninja reflexes to remain intact.
At the same time, the battery collection I have to recycle has grown and clearly there was a more ecological way to go.
And so, I am hoping to find that the USB recharge, the blink but don’t go dark, and simply the 300 Lumens provided by this light result in an efficient and effective upgrade to my commute. If one care misses me because of this, it was worth it.
I was just talking to my wife Saturday as we passed bicyclists in the dark on the way home how idiotic it is to have “bike friendly” clothes that have zero reflective material. We noticed how blinkies certainly helped, but for the money, NOTHING comes close to reflective strips. I was complaining as @petebikes added reflective materials to the rigs for @DaveNPetePartII and I haven’t done anything. And THIS despite the wonderful folks at the Bicycle Repair Collective mentioning it about a zillion times.
This morning, this article “Reflective Tape DIY – “Get Visible!” from bikecommuters.com crosses my desk and I decide it is a sign and hop over to Amazon and order two of these. I will show you what I do with it, but I am leaning to my bags as well as my rig.
