Some people have to ride at night, other people like to ride at night. You can change yourself from the “have to” to the “like to” category pretty easily, just by outfitting your current bike with high-quality lights (front and rear) or go big with dynamo lighting system.
Whichever you choose, you enhance your safety and riding enjoyment when you can see the road in front of you and others can easily see you on the road in front of them. If you have encountered a cyclist without lights while you are driving, you probably wanted to yell, “Get some lights on your bike!” At this time of year in particular, lights matter. So what are the best lights for your bike?
