It’s pretty late in the season, but today was my first before work ride. I took the quick Granville Bridge Route.
Another first – this was the first time I really used my Electrodynamic Bikelights. I installed them way back in March , but I haven’t ridden in the dark until today. (The installation was quite easy.)
These things work exactly as advertised. When the bike is moving, the lights blink. Since I have two magnets on each wheel, I get two blinks per revolution. Do some math with speed and tire size, and one can figure the blinks per second. (I’ll save you some time – it blinks pretty fast when I’m going fast, and not as fast when going slow.) No batteries required. I especially like the front light, since it will help make me visible even when a headlight doesn’t do much. On this ride, I wasn’t able to find my headlight, so it came in handy.
Unfortunately, no one passed me on the tree shaded portions of Division Road heading west, and by the time I was out on the busier part of the road, the sun had popped up. Still, had there been an oncoming car, the driver would have seen me.
