We received a monthly catalog supplement today from one of our major suppliers. Seven of its 50 pages were filled with bicycle lights.
On a separate note, our representative for Serfas, one of our favorite makers of bicycle accessories, has indicated to us that bike lights are one of their key growth categories, too.
We're not surprised. As more people start riding a bike, they're becoming hip to the idea that drivers need to see you in daylight hours as well as at night.
A headlight and taillight with strong flashing or pulsing modes are must-have bike accessories, whether you're a short hop commuter running errands, out for a neighborhood cruise, or cycling every day in traffic.
I have some additional thoughts…stay tuned
