As a daily bike commuter, I work hard to be noticed by cars. It seems that even with my dorky reflector vest and light system, cars still don’t notice me; it’s scary. If that’s the case, I began to wonder why so many bikers don’t use lights at night…
So one night, on my way home from work I started asking.
I didn’t believe some people. Especially the guy who I pass almost every morning.
And I simply didn’t understand others.
No one will be surprised that the most common response to my nosy, intrusive, and snobby question was the one below.
But for some reason, I kept asking.
This particular person was wearing all black clothes and lacked a helmet.
I really should have stopped, but I couldn’t help myself.
After that, I stopped asking. I still wonder, but now I just ride along in silence.
