Why Are Bicycle Lights Important?

"The most important thing for cyclists is to make sure we can be seen by motorists(because, unfortunately, they might kill us if they don’t see us). The second most important thing is to make sure we can see where we are going (for obvious reasons). Both of these are vital for safety, which is why I so strongly believe that bike lights are the best thing you can spend your money on once you start commuting by bike. (I am usually the most brightly-lit cyclist for miles around when I cycle.) The question is, how to choose the right bike lights for your money, with such a vast choice available?"- Average Joe Cyclist

Complete Guide to Bike Lights- by Average Joe Cyclist

"The most important thing for cyclists is to make sure we can be seen by motorists(because, unfortunately, they might kill us if they don’t see us). The second most important thing is to make sure we can see where we are going (for obvious reasons). Both of these are vital for safety, which is why I so strongly believe that bike lights are the best thing you can spend your money on once you start commuting by bike. (I am usually the most brightly-lit cyclist for miles around when I cycle.) The question is, how to choose the right bike lights for your money, with such a vast choice available?"

Categories of Bike Lights

The first thing to know is that bike lights are designed for two main categories:

  1. lights to use on mountain bikes on mountains and trails; and
  2. lights to use on the road.

These two kinds of bike lights are very different in weight, expense, how long they run, and how much light they produce. So start by deciding which type of bike light you need. For most commuters, you want lights designed for use on roads, not mountains."

How Bike Light Power is Measured

" The Lumen is the unit for measuring brightness, now that Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are standard. Bear in mind however that while 3,000 lumens is ultra-bright when focused in a laser-like beam, it becomes less bright if it is diffused into a wide angle beam. So you have to factor in breadth of beam as well as power when assessing the brightness of lights."

Important points to consider when choosing your lights include:

  • Power (measured in lumens)
  • Beam (a powerful light that is dispersed too widely becomes less powerful)
  • Battery life
  • How easy it is to recharge the batteries
  • Side visibility
  • Weight
  • How easy they are to take on and take off
