Without the correct bicycle lights, cycling at night can be quite a risky activity. Remaining visible when on the road is essential for any cyclist. Aside from cycling journeys on the road bike light fixtures are also important when on trails, which are almost always unlit. Cycling is fast becoming one of the most popular ways to get to and from work, as people want a healthier and cheaper alternative to driving or using public transport. However, many cyclists forget that even in a well lit city area, visibility can be limited due to darker evenings and foggy conditions. With the simple addition of a light to the front and the rear of the bike, you can make sure your cycling journey is safe and pleasant.
Remember to choose the right bicycle lights for your cycling conditions and of course the bike itself; if you have a mountain bike and often cycle across trails, then MTB lights (short for mountain bike lights) are a necessity. These MTB lights are more robust and are specifically made to withstand rougher conditions. One option for the rear light is the Vis 180 Rear Light; this rechargeable light is very powerful and easy to use. Another rear bike light which is a popular choice with many cyclists is the RSP Astrum Rear Light; this item is water resistant, so it is perfectly suited to wet weather conditions and it comes with alkaline batteries and two lighting modes.
