The other evening I was about to set off home into the dark evening when I realised that I had done a very silly thing - left my front light at home!
Not wanting to miss out on the rest of my life, I decided to buy a new light before making my journey, so I headed to a place that I know does lights at reasonable prices.
When I got there I found nice set of LED lights, front and back and also another LED light that is on a wrist strap! Hah! I have secretly wanted one of those for some time!
So I headed outside and rigged up the new lights. From behind I now have 3 flashing LED lights - 1 on the bike and 2 on my rucksack - plus another one on my right arm which makes it clear when I am turning right, across the traffic. If you are in one of those silly places where you drive on the wrong side of the road, think of when you are turning LEFT. No excuses for not seeing me now! I probably look like a small Christmas tree rattling along the road...
