Cyclists urged to light up on dim mornings

Cyclists urged to light up on dim mornings

Early morning cyclists need to make sure they are well lit, say cycling advocates.

"The start of daylight saving means more people on bikes, but some may be caught out by morning twilight," said Cycling Action Network spokesman Patrick Morgan.

"Lights, reflectors and high-visibility riding gear make you easier to see," said Mr Morgan.

With popular events such as the Taupo Cycle Challenge just two months away, many people will be making the most of longer evenings to pile on the miles.

"As the days get longer we will see many more people enjoying the pleasures and convenience of biking."

"Cycling offers the ultimate trip: it's a fast and easy way to get around, while improving your health at the same time."

"Our message to people on bikes is to get out there and enjoy the ride, and use your lights whenever visibility is poor."

"For drivers, the message is that you can expect to see more people on bikes as summer comes."
