Why You Should Use Bike Lights, Even During the Day

Why You Should Use Bike Lights, Even During the Day

February 13, 2018

Every bicycle should be outfitted with bike lights—and not just if you plan on riding at night. Even if you only plan on riding your bike when it’s light outside, you should strongly consider making a bike light a permanent feature of your ride.

Here are just a few reasons why bike lights are critical bike accessories in Naples, FL, even during the day, on both the front and back end of your bicycle:

  • Greater visibility: We’re not just talking about your ability to see other things—having lights on your bike increases your visibility to other people on the road, regardless of light conditions. Studies have shown that bicyclists who have permanent lights on their bikes are 19 percent less likely to get into an accident involving an injury. These studies are reflected in the number of cars that now always have their lights on, regardless of the amount of light being provided by the sun. It can’t hurt you at all to have permanent lights on your bike, but it definitely can help you.
  • You’ll be ready for any conditions: The weather can quickly change. If the forecast was for sunny weather but it suddenly gets cloudy, hazy and rainy, having lights on your bike can provide you with some much-needed visibility that you may not have expected to need when you left your departure point. You’ll also be able to use your light all year round. They’ll come in handy in the winter months when there’s less light and weather conditions that quickly change, and they’ll be useful in summer when you need more visibility as more people pack the roadways.
  • Technology has advanced: Today’s bike lights are brighter than they’ve ever been. You’ll find some lights that offer up to 300 or 400 lumens, which will significantly improve visibility even in the daylight. Meanwhile, battery times are lasting longer. You’ll also find bike lights that come with rechargeable batteries and LED bulbs. In fact, many modern lights are USB chargeable, providing you with more charging options. These technological advances have made it so your bike lights are no longer a source of inconvenience.
  • They are convenient: If you have multiple bikes, you don’t have to worry about buying multiple sets of lights unless you also have multiple people using your bikes—you can easily switch out light sets from one bike to another. Bracket systems make it easy to quickly undo the lights and then snap them onto a different bike. The cost certainly adds to the convenience—lights will last for a long time, provide you with additional levels of safety and will not cost you all that much money.

These are just a few of the reasons why bike lights are such a valuable addition to any bicycle. For more information about why lights are essential bicycle accessories in Naples, FL, or to peruse a selection of high quality options, talk to the experts at Big Momma’s Bicycles today!
