I have a headtorch with flashing red LEDs which I've strapped to my helmet when cycling and it certainly helps me to feel safer on the road as the nights draw in. I can't believe how many people cycle around in the dark dressed in black with no lights. <br> <br>I think I'm going to make one of these to keep as a spare, or maybe a load of them to give away to other cyclists. Thanks for posting it.
