This evening some of us meet at Jack Block Park to be video-taped by Jeff Hallman through a car windshield, to see how we bike riders appear to car drivers and others at night. Video coming after Jeff has some time to edit.
It was an opportunity to see first-hand from another point of view just how well, or not, our lights and/or reflective gear work from all angles and in different lighting situations. We had a variety of light setups and reflectivity, and tried with and without car lights shining on us, and with and without our lights on. Some surprises, good and bad, for each of us. We’ll share it soon. No surprise that it’s really hard to see riders who are riding without lights in dark clothing!
