Doing the right thing

It is the dark season... autumn nights come early, but this doesn't stop Montreal cyclists from using their bikes to get from the undesirable Point A to the vastly more desirable destination of Point B.

Unfortunately, some cyclists act as if the night time is still full of daylight, and have no lights or reflectors. This makes them invisible. And this is not a superpower, no, in fact it can seriously shorten your lifespan!

So this week we passed a well-dressed woman (all-black clothes, of course) riding her bike and instead of just ignoring this accident-waiting-to-happen, we gave her our reflective pants-cuff velcro thing. A little reflection is a lot better than none at all.

Ride safe everybody!
