4. Be Prepared for Changing Conditions
If you live somewhere with changeable conditions, using, or at least having lights with you during the day can make sense. In areas where it can quickly get dark, foggy or cloudy during the day or otherwise make seeing you difficult, it makes sense to use lights.
Even on the sunniest of days, some areas of the world are changeable and can switch from cloudless skies one minute to deep fog or dark storm clouds the next. If we know there’s a chance for rain mid-ride, we will most likely bring a rain jacket along. The same goes for bike lights.
Having lights with you at all times makes perfect sense. Being prepared is all part of being a cyclist and this time it’s about safety and not just looking good or having the right kit for the conditions.
