Just get out there and ride! Don't need lycra or special shoes. A helmet is optional...your choice.

I am just a guy with a love of the bicycle and a firm believer it is a viable form of transportation. The bicycle is an amazing invention. It allows a small human to transport a large load over long distances easily. It is THE MOST ENERGY EFFICIENT FORM OF TRANSPORTATION...PERIOD!!!

Can you SEE me NOW!?

This is an early Christmas present to myself :-D I frequently ride narrow two lane country roads with poor lighting and short site distances. I usually wear a highway worker style vest. But this will cut out one layer in the cooler seasons. It is ANSI Class 2 Compliant...which means I can get a job on a road crew if I need too ;-) It is a Carhartt which is what I typically wear for work anyway.

There will now be no excuse for NOT seeing me as I wander down the highways and byways. Hopefully in the future things like this won't be required or necessary for cyclists, we will insist that all cars be painted a hideous color so we can see them coming.

Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to each and everyone, and if you happen not to Celebrate Christmas....Happy Holidays.
