Information for Cyclists. You'll like this.

To my fellow cycle riding artists and just about anyone who enjoys riding their bikes. Further to my previous post, here is a link to some information which you may find useful, especially if you ride in the dark. Ding! Ding! Bike Stuff.
Any feedback would be gratefully accepted.


  1. Loved it! I also like your photos and descriptions, worthy of a true industrial designer and technical writer.

  2. Ah! You found me out. I used to be an electronics hardware designer for Nortel Networks. I used to design the internal bits and pieces in computerised telephone exchange equipment. Discipline and a meticulous logical approach were a pre-requisite to juggle the amount of information I had to digest and the design rules I had to adhere to. Art was my safety valve and escape route. But that was then and this is now.

  3. Such great ideas you have, John. Unfortunately, I have put my bike away for the winter as riding in below freezing temperatures and snow do not appeal to me. Your new invention, however, is the cat's meow!

  4. Im very familiar with this my husband was pro-cyclist and yes your right the cyclist always need to keep visible, is very sad when the people cause accident to them! Your ideas are great and will help a lot of people who like to do this sport or activity
    Have a great weekends john!!!

  5. John:
    Thanks to your bike light postings I invested in a new light for my bike that I've mounted on my helmet. I bought a Cats Eye LED light system that is about 20 times brighter than that old light I had strapped to my calf. I also have an older amber blinking light on the back of my rear rack.

    I mounted the light on my helmet because my handlebar bag would block the light if I mounted the light on the handlebar. Do you envision any problem with the white front light being on my helmet other than possibly burning the retina's out of the eyes of oncoming drivers? :-)



Thankyou for taking time to comment on my blog. It's good to get feedback, I really do appreciate it.
