One guy (bizarrely) was catapulted off the road and couldn’t be found. It was only a copper picking up his reflectives in torchlight in the dark as he lay unconscious in the boughs of a tree that saved him. Another guy got pinged across an unlit service road off the London North Circular road in the early hours. If it wasn’t for the reflectives the driver on the opposite carriageway almost certainly would have run him over.

Do this

Wear clothing with reflective strips.

Don’t do this

Think that lights are enough. Bike lights soon get covered in filth.
