    Gotta agree with the wait for it principle (life saving) & finding a safer/quieter route. Quieter routes while often further are more enjoyable. Thanks for sharing

    interesting read, but my eyes glaze over when the writer uses metric units – they just don’t have any meaning or frame of reference for me – so trying to do math while reading just doesn’t work.

      Typically those authors are European and they tend to think like most everyone else when the get to writing in a hurry – they just know metric. We know standard… which is why I provide both as we went through last week. Eventually I’ve come to understand metric better for the effort.

    I agree with most of what he said. The visibility issue? I’m not sure. I REALLY need to find the research work done in Australia that stated that hi viz clothing did not change accident rates with cars hitting us. It’s still a mindset on the part of drivers. “You don’t belong on the road…..these are for cars!” I will say I’m seeing less of that attitude than I used to. I think his ideas on lights at night are spot on, although he’s speaking from a strictly urban viewpoint on light pollution.
