Bike lights to celebrate summertime cycling

summertime cycling lights

The start of British Summer Time this weekend means you can start to be a little more flexible in your lighting requirements.

The Bookman 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.

    Ticks all the boxes for me. Being soft, I wear gloves this time of year when commuting, but find it rather inconvenient that I have to pull them off sticky fingers to activate my lights; The large button on top is a major plus on these Bookman lights.

    I love the idea of USB charging lights, so much more convenient than replacing batteries. As long as there’re bright enough, these look great for urban commuting.

    They look brilliant. I’d love a pair – especially the rear one to replace my current light, the connecting band of which is broken.

    Looking at the first picture, why would anyone fit safety equipment like these brilliant lights to a bike without brakes???!!!

      Might it have a coaster brake? Millions of Dutch cyclists use bicycles fitted only with coaster brakes every single day without mishap.

    These would be ideal to replace the ones some ‘light-fingered’ thief snatched from my son’s bike in the school bike sheds.
