If you bike at night, and you're too cheap to shell out $35 for a specially made light and helmet mount, then these instructions are for you. All you need is a $3 flashlight and a shoelace.
- $3 flashlight: I got mine at Big 5. It was in a basket at the check-out counter, and it was $3. The lady at the counter informed me that the ridges can be used for self defense. I cared more that it took AAA batteries and put out a nice strong beam. I'm betting there are about four billion other $3 flashlights you can find that will work just as well.
- Shoelace: You can take one from an old shoe, or buy a new one for $0.99, or use a piece of string. If you're a rebel, you could use a piece of tape or a Velcro strap instead. It won't hurt my feelings.
