Following on from my first cycling orientated post stressing the pressing need to wear a helmet I have moved onto my second most important safety measure, a high-viz jacket.
As a regular cyclist, cycling through the winter, and often in the pitch black – visibility really is of paramount importance.
Granted some people feel that having a bright green/yellow luminous jacket may not be the most fashionable item. However Altura have created non garish coloured, weatherproof high-viz jacket- the ‘night vision’. I practically live in mine, they really don’t look hideous and keep you highlighted to motorists as well as dry and warm.
A shrewd investment, just remember you cant put a price on your safety.
