Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark » Cyclelicious

Being retired and cursed with poor vision, I’ll likely avoid riding at night. Still this seems awfully good advice. I’ve added it to our commuter page.

Practically speaking, three years of night shift commuting (6:00 p.m./6:00 a.m., and 5:00 p.m./1:00 a.m.) allowed me a glimpse at the dark side of commuting, pun intended. No matter when one commutes by bike and shares a road with motorists, danger lurks in places unaware. While during the day we deal with traffic in volume and sunlight decreasing visibility during certain months, at night there are nocturnal wildlife and…the other nocturnal wildlife: the drunks.
