Being seen during Hunting Season

Postby DynoDon » November 28th, 2019, 6:46 am

Hunting season's still goes on until the end of the year, being seen is your best defence if you ride in hunting areas. I tried using my blinky lights from my gravel bike on my trail bike, I put the red one in the front, the white on the rear, many possitive comments from other riders that seen me on the trails,, hunter orange jersey, vest, just increase your chances of being seen.

just a reminder..

I know you are riding on trails but be mindful if you end up riding on the roads at night with lights arranged in this fashion. Michigan law requires a white light in front and red in back after dark.

Lights and Reflectors. A bicycle being operated between 1/2 hour after sunset and 1/2 hour before sunrise shall be equipped with an appropriate white lamp on the front and a red reflector on the rear. McL 257.662(1)

Thats and easy fix, (to switch the blinky's) if I ever rode on roads with that bike, but I don't, I'm so cheap I don't want to ride those expensive tires on pavement. I never thought about saying that, but you're right. I'm allergic to bullets so I think its a good idea, and it may save a life.
