HOW DID RIDR HELP?

One of the things I most love about my light is that it has the additional laser function. When I turn this on it illuminates the space around my bike with two laser beams and helps ensure cars/cyclists don’t get too close. I have a basket behind my seat and I was concerned the light wouldn’t attach well to it but it works like a breeze and stays mounted even when I’m cycling on bumpy roads–we’ve got a lot of those in East London!

Another feature that is a lifesaver is that its rechargeable instead of battery-powered. I had run out of juice of my previous light and because I’m lazy I had neglected to replace the batteries and was cycling in the evenings without a light. The fact that I can just plug the RIDR light into charge bypasses my laziness and helps me be a safer and more considerate cyclist.

There was also a moment when it was late at night and was cycling home without a light (irresponsible, I know!). A car pulled up next to me at a red light and a man started leering and shouting at me and asking me why I didn’t have a light. The streets were pretty desolate and I was by myself. I realised at that moment I had put myself in harm’s way for something as silly as not having the right level of visibility. That’s the same night I bought these lights!

HOW HAS RIDR HELPED?

I recently started using the RIDR light for nightly commutes. Every Tuesday I cycle to football in Shoreditch after work and cycling back through Brick Lane with the light and laser on flash mode I feel confident that everyone can see me. Its 360-degree reach makes you visible from all sides.

I highly recommend the RIDR light to anyone wishing to bike safely in the dark. Especially on busy roads like East London.

How has RIDR helped you?

Usually, I cycle after work so it’s already dark out most of the time. When I cycle, I can feel that I’m not visible enough. It is the most annoying feeling because it takes away everything I love about cycling.

With RIDR, I can literally see lines around my bike on the ground. I know that others can see them too and that I have better visibility because of them. So when I have the RIDR Lights I feel safer, and so I can relax more and enjoy my bike rides more.
