As gas prices climb faster than thermometer this summer, many Americans are choosing to hop on a bike for short trips, such as to the grocery store or library. Some have even been surprised to find that they can commute to work via bike. Many Americans are choosing to leave their car at home: The Guardian reports that last month saw the steepest decrease in miles driving by Americans since 1942.
If you’re one of the thousands of Americans who is converting to bike, be sure you’re prepared for all driving conditions: research bike routes with low traffic, educate yourself of bike maintenance, and gear up with lights. Responsible bike owners loudly advertise their presence through front and rear lights.
LED Lights make great bike lights, since they require very little battery power and the bulbs are too bright to miss. DLK has the right LED lights for your bike. The Biker Power Chip, at right, is popular among in-the-know bikers for its easy transition from bike light to flashlight. With such a slick light for your cycling and pedestrian needs, you’ll look for excuses to leave the car at home.
