GW and Consumer have run a very thorough set of tests on bikes lights. It’s worth checking their webpage for the survey results. Here’s a brief rundown:
High visibility is your best bet for safe cycling, running and walking in low light conditions.
Wear bright clothing during the daytime hours and reflective material after dark.
Applying reflective tape to your backpack, ankles, helmet or bike is a simple and effective way to increase your visibility when the days are shorter.
If you are a Wellington region resident, and would like some reflective tape, pop into our reception at 142 Wakefield Street or send a stamped self addressed envelope to:
