After having several hundred cyclist v motorist threads over the years on here I thought I’d start up a Cyclist v Cyclist debate.
Given it’s almost the shortest day of the year and all of us are riding home in the dark, I thought I’d ask why do some people think it’s necessary to light their path like they’re trying to spot bombers coming in over the English Channel? Almost every night now I get blinded by one of these spotlights stuck to a helmet passing you within a metre at eye level. Sometimes they’re so bright you literally can’t see anything in front of you. It’s even worse when they’ve got the thing stuck on strobe
So for all of you who insist on wearing these lights on your evening commute can you please dip them to the ground or put your head off to the side when you pass rather than shine the thing right in my face. Thanks.
