Be Loud 

Is drawing attention to yourself egotistical or is it a way to save the species?

You see it in almost every sport. Clothing that is so bright that the ghosts of 1982 are putting on sunglasses. Bright-colored clothing makes sense in some sports but not in all of them. In soccer for example, I do not think that having day-glow orange shoes will save your life or let your team mate know that you are open to make that winning shot. No, those kicks are pretty much a fashion statement. "I am good and I know it. Take a look." Whatever.  

In sports where being seen can be a matter of life and death, I think this return to obnoxious colors is well-founded. Bright is safe. Loud is smart. Runners find that bright colored clothing helps them to stand out and be seen as they do their daily routine on the road or even on paths and sidewalks. Cycling is no different. In fact, it is more important to us to be seen as we ride in traffic, long urban roads, or even in the woods. I once had an old farmer come up to our road riding group and say, "That guy in the yellow is the smartest of all of you. He's the only one I saw." Sadly it was not me who stood out.

If you don't already own some visible clothing, Lee's Bike Shop can definitely help you out. We have high-visibility jerseys, jackets, warmers, gloves, shoes, and lights to help you be seen.  

So break out the old Trek with the day-glow green paint job or get some of those high visibility yellow arm warmers and booties. Wear something bright. Turn on the brightest lights possible, day or night. Become a distraction in a world of distractions. It may save your life.
