Whoever was riding outbound on west Carson Monday, at rush hour, in the dark, at 25 deg F, that is Badass, big props. I was in the comfortable bus. My only comment is, the flashing back blinky and headlight were good, but you might want to add a 2nd or even 3rd rear blinky, on steady, in those conditions. I felt a gut twinge of concern for you as we passed, that one blinky is pretty slim protection. But good for you.
I think I learn some of the most valuable tips from cyclists when I’m in a car and I can’t see them or they do something I don’t like. Then I think “wait… I only have one blinkie, maybe I should consider a second”
