Being visible on a bicycle is crucial, especially at night or in low-light hours. Here's a wild lighting system for your bicycle.
The Bike Glow Safety Light is a new product that is completely waterproof and battery operated. You can wrap it around the frame of the bike and the bike can be seen from all directions. Bike Glow Safety Light is a 10-foot flexible light tube that uses electroluminescent technology and bright colors for increased visibility from the side. Bike Glow retails for $24.95 and comes in a variety of colors. It can be purchased at www.bikeglow.com, REI stores and at specialty bicycle retailers.
