The clocks have just gone back, its wintery and dark and rainy. So why are so many people still cycling and running without hi-viz clothing? A chap on his bike at about 4pm today wearing black top to toe (even the bike was black) was perfectly camouflaged against the black road. There’s a couple who run sometimes around here at 7.30am before it’s really light. There are no pavements. Yet they’re bobbing along wearing black from top to toe and invisible in the half light.
I know high viz kit isn’t sexy but neither is being dead.
