One way to promote Bike Week

Treehugger | Bikes and Strikes in Toronto

Toronto residents woke up yesterday morning to a general transit strike. As a result, bikes ruled the day, with Treehugger reporting:

The bicycle proved itself to be the most efficient means of transport and, next to walking, the only thing that moved. We hope many of these new riders find that they like it and keep it up!

Now available: Strobing riding jackets

Stridelite + Cyclite

Bright Night has introduced a line of jackets for runners and cyclists that take visibility to the next level.

Reflective jackets have been available for a few years, and do a good job of reflecting light from approaching cars back to their drivers’ eyes. The new jackets don’t require any source light, because they have built-in lights that provide 360 degrees of visibility and that blink periodically.

2 AAA batteries provide 300 hours of use, and the lights are reportedly visible from a quarter-mile.
