If you are new to the world of cycle commuting, you really need to be aware of the clocks going back this weekend. The dark nights have been creeping in for the last month or so, but the changing of the clocks means it’s easy to get caught out. On Monday you’ll notice that there will be more light in the morning, but when you leave for the ride home, it’s going to be quite dark.
If you haven’t already kitted yourself out with reflective clothing and lights, now might be a good time to sort it out – it’s not going to get any lighter for a few months yet.
Remember to stay safe this winter and don’t become a statistic. It might be expensive upgrading your equipment but it’s better than getting hit by someone driving carelessly.
