I live in a small city, but one with plenty of bike lanes. Drivers and cyclists coexist with relative peace, and it’s one of the safest places to cycle in the world.
But have I nearly been wiped out a number of times? You bet. And it usually happens because the car can’t see me.
It’s a tough go as a cyclist. Not only are you sharing the road with bigger, faster vehicles, you’re also difficult to see and far more vulnerable to injury if you get into an accident.
I don’t say this to discourage your cycle commute, because I truly believe the pros heavily outweigh the cons, but it’s the reality.
I’m a fan of any piece of gear that improves your visibility and safety. So when RideOut Technologies asked me to check out their Firefly turn signal handlebar grips, it was an easy yes from me. Yep, they’re grips with a signal light that you can control.
So how do the Firefly grips work?
