Another predominantly black cycling top, yes it has 'reflective elements', but it is extremely doubtful other road users will actually see them.

Please, let's all be safe on the roads, wear high visibility clothing, use appropriate front and rear lighting.

I do.

Cycling for life.

Theres blue and red available too.

As much as I believe in being visible I don't really think it matters what you wear. The standard of driving is so poor out there. I was hit by a woman who admitted "listening" for traffic rather than looking as she pulled out her driveway and into me. I could have been wrapped in Christmas lights and it would not have mattered.
My two bits on the hi biz clothing argument.
I've cycled to work every working day for the last 6 years. A round trip of 12 miles.
In that time this is what I found works for me:
1. Flashing lights front and back that are bright. Adjusted so as not to dazzle oncoming traffic. I know when my lights are adjusted wrong as drivers will remonstrate or even try to drive their car at me...
2. Cameras front and back. Before cameras I had loads of incidents with drivers having a go at me. With cameras this doesn't hardly happen. I’m happy to have no 'interesting' footage.
3. Hi biz jacket with the words 'Pass Wide' on the back. Surprisingly some drivers do take note.
4. Ride defensively. Always assume a driver hasn't seen me at a junction or roundabout until proven otherwise. This I do by looking at the driver. If no eye contact then be prepared for them pulling out in front of me.

Ride safety guys.

There are some idiots around, everywhere! It is one of the many facts of life.

I personally want to protect the ones I love, and myself, from these people, and potential accidents /incidents.

If that means being visible on the road I don't think it is a sacrifice in any way.

As well as you have decent front and rear lights you should be fine. The one time I was knocked down by a car I was wearing a highly reflective jacket in a cycle lane and the driver didnt see me. I could have been dressed as coco the clown and it would have made no difference. She wasn't looking for a bike so she didnt see one. This is about motorcyles: autowise.com/why…hy/

Ahh, well I should have explained my particular geographical experiences, apologies for that.

I live the countryside, there isn't any street lighting, the roads are mainly lined with woodland and hedgerow.

I bike, I walk, and I drive. I wouldn't partake on any of these activities on the road without being clearly visible to other road users.

It isn't rocket science

Please provide scientific evidence that hi-viz is any better than normal clothing, because your going to struggle as the evidence suggests that it doesnt.

I'm sorry but I haven't time to read your articles.

High visibility, in its literal meaning to me, is self explanitiry.

I can't imagine we will ever agree. I can't be arsed to argue.

Just need to look at the headlines, they're all vehicles decked in hi-viz from top to bottom that have been crashed into.

I can wear a yellow jacket, it's not going to switch off a dozy driver's phone.
People will argue anything these days... Obviously hi vis is better as it increases your visibility. But no it's not going to prevent every accident.
Are you the same people that don't wear seatbelts because your grandad says his life was saved by not wearing one once?

Would advise against dressing as a Clown; people might think you are B Johnson....
Some good stuff , sadly though prices increase depending on your size , as for hi-viz yeah it’s great but you cannot legislate for stupid drivers, yes there are stupid cyclists, buts there’s more of the former , and they’ve got protection wrapped round them

I see where you are getting confused here. The vehicles you are referring to are pretty much clad in prismatic reflective livery, for want of a better word. I do find this system uncomfortable to the eyes.

High visibility clothing is mainly a fluorescent material, sometimes complimented with a flash of a reflective shape or band. This clothing is used a lot in my area by village residents,such as dog walkers, walkers, horse riders, trades people etc. We want to be seen. Even when my wife and I walk the dogs off road we wear hi vis. It is just common sense.

Anyway, I've wasted enough time now with you. I know you are too stubborn to see the light, no pun intended.

Just as a footnote. I was driving over the tops this morning, it was rather misty, some vehicles didn't have any lights on. Very silly, very dangerous, the patch was around five miles long. It really was the size of the vehicles that made them stand out from the fog. Just as I was driving out of the fog, a bunch of black clad cyclists were riding into it, no lights, nothing but black. That Johnny, is irresponsible, a complete death wish. What if they get hit by a vehicle because they couldn't be seen?

I'm not anti cyclist, on the contrary, I am a cyclist, and a motorist, and a walker. I also have common sense and a conscience.

Have a great weekend.

All the best.
My two bits on the hi biz clothing argument.

Love my Fly 12ce and Fly6v.

The 6v was £50 when they were being sold off because the new 6ce was released, so I returned my faulty Aldi copy for a refund.
it was so good I bought a Fly12 (also half price because the new 12ce was released). When the 12 developed a fault Cycliq sent me a 12ce which has been faultless. Certainly can't complain about that customer service!

Go pro Hero on the front of bike and Mobius attached to rear of helmet. Go pro is great as it's waterproof and quality of video is very good too. Can be a bit iffy charging sometimes though. Mobius good too but not waterproof, but very light.
