Cycling is, or can be, a lifestyle. A really healthy one, too. But also dangerous as hell.
For anyone who rides a lot and hasn't seen it yet, this is a brilliant and simple (and cheap!) idea for boosting safety when riding on highways:
It's so simple that all you need to do is look at the photo to get it. But there was an article, too: https://qz.com/16209...-a-pool-noodle/
In related news, something that's becoming a serious safety concern for pedestrians and cyclists are daytime running lights on cars.
They are partly to blame for the rise in accidents with pedestrians and cyclists because when a driver looks left to see if a car is coming, their eyes are reflexively drawn to the running lights of an approaching vehicle and the decision to pull into traffic will be based on how far away that vehicle is. But in focusing on the vehicle's lights, pedestrians and especially cyclists are easily overlooked and can (and do) get hit when a driver pulls out in front of (or into) them. So now bikes ridden on roads need big strong lights on the front in the daytime, too.
