Introduction: Safety Light on Bike Helmet

One of the most important tips to safe cycling is to be as visible as possible to cars and pedestrians. In addition to head light and rear light I also attach a rear light to the back of the helmet for added visibility. This is a simple hack to add a rear light without zip ties or duck tape for a clean look. Note, this may not work on all helmets particularly ones with adjustment dials.

Things you'll need:
     Bicycle helmet
     Rear bicycle light
     Sharp knife
