Both Free Flight owner Brian Walsh and Bicycle World owner Parrish Marugg report that Daytime Running Lights by Bontrager have become an excellent safety feature for all bike owners. The intensely bright lights are highly visible even on sunny days. Bontrager manufactures a front and rear light set that retails for $69. The 65 lumen rear light can be seen from 2 kilometers away.
This is part of the ongoing research by Trek that focuses on assisting motorists to increase biker visibility. More information can be found at: https://www.trekbikes.com/us/en_US/daytime_running_lights/
Brian Walsh also notes that Garmin continues to add features to their bike computers, especially sending a rider’s statistics to Strava automatically. Reflective shoes and socks are other items that merit a look, too. Riders may want to check these out.
