Pretty much as ^ loads of cheap bright LED lights about now. You can spend a lot more on branded ones and they are better made with usually better beam pattern but are no brighter

If I was frequently riding at speeds over 30mph I would want to be wearing full leathers and a motorcycle helmet. Crashing at 40mph is pretty much guaranteed to end in death according to the statistics.

I have and didn't, it was wet and I slid a lot, hurt like hell. Didn't bang my head tho.

It's hilly here so frequently see over 30mph, biggest danger with that is still being pranged by other road users who don't think you're going that quickly so I slowed my commute down as too many T junctions to pass. I've only broken one helmet, part of the damage was a pierced hole from a rock.

did it last year. great race. If you are reasonably quick (you'll have to make that judgement youself) then make sure you don't get hemmed in so far back that people walking (slowly) up the hill don't hold you up. It's single file at that point and impossible to pass.

Nice bus ride to the start too

Hello Scottish runners. I am not Scottish, but will soon be moving to Scotland so I hope you don't mind if I pop in from time to time with ignorant noob questions about Scottish races etc.

The first of which is: has anyone done Glasgow half, and is it worth travelling 70 miles (from Fife) for? There don't seem to be recent reviews, not that I have looked especially hard, admittedly.

Wouldn't bother

Front light deal on deal extreme 20 euros

loads and loads of these on ebay, generic Cree XML LED. Paid £16 for mine complete with charger and batteries. Some of the chargers and batteries are not of the best quality and are reputed to explode / ignite.

Not as good beam pattern and heat/battery management wise or as well made as some of the more expensive branded ones but excellent VFM.

Try these to blow more ££, they are very good. http://www.troutie.com/
