Ghost Rider

Can you be seen?  My morning commute now starts before the sun has bothered to arrive at work.  It's quiet.  It's dark.  And drivers are suffering from caffeine deprivation. Can you be seen in the dark.

Try this - in the dark - take a picture of your bike with a flash camera - this will give you some idea of what will bounce back at a driver's headlights.

My bike has Michelin City tires with reflectors built into the sidewalk.  Also interested to see the Cannondale logo - which is reflective black - throwing back light.

Added on top when riding is front and rear lights - and a high viz shell.

Have noticed that the CABI's have reflective tires in a similar manner - they throw back some good light on the GW.
