Dress To Be Seen

As you might have noticed, the nights are drawing in, and the sun officially sets tonight before training starts.  If you’ve not done so already, its time to dig out your white tops and reflective bibs, and wear them along to training.

Don’t forget that the ‘reflectiveness’ of a bib can get worse with washing, so do check whether you need to invest in a new one.

Don’t also forget that ‘fluorescent’ colours, while easily seen in evening twilight, are useless once it is completely dark.  The ‘fluorescence’ gets its vivid colour from ambient ultraviolet light, relatively plentiful in murky light, but completely absent at night time (unless you’re standing near a fluorescent bulb).

So you really do need to wear white, the brightest ‘colour’ at night, and/or a reflective bib.
