Summertime cycling lights

summertime cycling lights

Now that both ends of the daily commute are blessed with daylight, you can afford to be a little more flexible in your lighting requirements.

The USB Light is compact and lightweight, but surprisingly bright. It fits all bicycle handlebars and seat posts and is quick and easy to attach with its rubber band. Its large button on the upper side is designed to ensure easy operation, even when wearing gloves.

The light is fitted with a micro USB port for recharging the battery. The indicator on the back of the light will start to flash when the battery is low and even then the light is programmed to hold a constant brightness so you can trust the lights to be bright when you need them.

The USB Light is well-suited to British summertime cycling – it’s weather resistant.

Ethical cycle insurance

On the face of it, one cycle insurance policy is much like another, but the devil is the detail. Check your small print for so-called ‘new-for-old’ replacement – many insurers use the term, but if your bicycle is more than a few years old, devalue it severely. This means you are left out of pocket when you come to replace it.

With ETA cycle insurance, however old the bike, if it’s stolen you get enough to buy a new model. Furthermore, every cycle insurance policy you buy from us helps support the work of the ETA Trust, our charity campaigning for a cleaner, safer transport future. Little wonder The Good Shopping Guide has voted us Britain’s most ethical insurance company.

    Small enough to fit into pocket, in case the return ride takes a little longer than planned.

    I really like the idea of daytime lights. It can get rather murky out there in “daylight”, even in a UK summer! The more we do as cyclists to improve our visibility, the better.

    Very nice, I particularly like the large buttons as I really struggle switching my current lights on and off in gloves.

    It is time Bicycles like other road user had Lights as part of the design of the Bike and integrated in. You would not buy a car or any other road vehicle that came with no lights. I would love to try a pair of these please. many thanks

    Nice and cool lights. Personally bikes should have lights on in day as it would make us more visible (why do u think motorbikes/mopeds have their lights on in the day sometimes for same reason as a motorbike is basically a bike with a engine) and hopefully prevent a few close calls 😜

    Where can I buy them from ?

    I am not lucky enough to win them.

    The last time I won something I was unable to drink it and could not take it back to accommodation as was not allowed due to Royal Navy regulations, when I next visited Pub someone had removed my prize a bottle of wine….

    Just what my brother needs for his cycle after being knocked off & left injured on the ground.
    I would love to give him these lights as added security when he rides to work in the evening.

    No Street Lights where I live – just the stars, so these would be a great addition to their atmospheric but faint luminescence. Did I also mention no cycle paths or cycle lanes either, but lots of cars, lorries and agricultural vehicles who don’t always see me!

    Easy enough for the kids not to forget them by keeping them in a pocket.
