In the dark

I want to run home from work but it's along a very dark country lane so I need to light myself up. Does anyone have any suggestions for lightwieght, bright lights that can clip onto the back of my shorts/t shirt and also onto the front as well? I want to be seen.

There are quite a few gadgets on the market from the likes of Ronhill that provide flashing armbands and the like... however..

my tip would be to pop along to B&M Home bargains and pick up a cheapo cycle light kit for around £2.99. I have a rflashing ed light clipped to the rear of my running belt, and a white one at the front and they are as lightweight and as good as anything else on the market.

The only downside is kids shouting, "you forgot your bike mister!"

and a headtorch to see where you're going

..yeah - but get a crap one that gives off a really weak yellowy light as it makes it seem like you are running loads faster in the dark!

I have a head torch and a flashing red LED light for my back. The headtorch is by LED LENSER and has bee great (cost about £25). The back light is made by Brooks and is magnetic so you can attach it to your top layer (cost about £10). Again, this works really well.
