Rider in the dark


They days are noticeably longer already and I’m looking forward to the day (in about 5 weeks) when the clocks go forward. This rider is in Oxford, where UK cycling blog tells us:

At night maybe 40% of cyclists in Oxford won’t use lights. Very occasionally, the police will have a spot check on Magdalen Bridge and fine cyclists £30 for not wearing lights. However, if you buy a pair of lights and present the receipt at a police station, you can get your £30 back - Pretty lenient really.

On the night I was on Oxford I estimated that about 25% of the cyclists didn’t have lights.
