Nice try, but that's a miss. It's usually the teenagers on their mountain bikes or BMXs that ride along at night with no lights. Though I've also seen on another cycleway some older guy get really annoyed at someone for having front lights on a bike, while this grumpy old guy was riding along in the dark with no lights at all. :roll:

Everyone else I see on the M7 at night has lights on their bikes, and they are all on road bikes. And I am riding on there a lot of times now at night, so I do notice.

I guess that explains the ubiquitous gel wrappers strewn along the cycleway. They must weigh at least a gram each.

Ah, a man after my own heart.

I know, I know, my comment was like 3 years old. What I should have said was there's no room on the aerofoil topped carbon bars or kamm-tail seat post to strap on a light. Still don't seem pro though.

That's good to know you are alright, when I came past and saw you I was pretty worried. I think the Marconi group might know who has your bike, they were talking to the other guys that were with you. I don't always see them but they are usually always down at Prestons around 7:00am-ish.

That nasty sharp bump on the south side of Cowpasture Rd bridge has been fixed recently.
