Get This: Lights & Motion 350

If you ride your bike in the dark, even at dusk, you need lights.  In the U.S., all 50 states REQUIRE a headlight and a tail light or reflector.  Getting a ticket is one thing…but you absolutely don’t want to get hit by a car.  And, unless you ride exclusively in well-lit urban areas, you probably need to be able to see in front of you.  In fact, using bike lights in the day time is becoming increasingly popular.

There are some amazing lights available these days.  If you want to dig into all the ins and outs of lights, head over to the Bike Light Database.  They have in-depth reviews of hundreds of headlights and taillights as well as recommendations.

Too much work?  Then read this detailed review of Light & Motion’s Urban 350.  And then go buy one directly from them or Amazon.  CPC agrees, this headlight is nearly perfect:

Highly recommended!  Update: My unit stopped working (blinking green while charging, otherwise unresponsive) after about 2.5 years.  That’s disappointing, but the current price (as of 2019-01-05) on Amazon is $19.  For that amount, I’m buying a couple more.
