Bike Lane That Travels With You

The system projects a virtual bike lane (using lasers!) on the ground around the cyclists, providing drivers with a recognizable boundary they can easily avoid.
If you can pull it off in a biker bar without being violated by a corn dog, more power to you.

That sounds like a good idea, especially if you do a lot of night riding. Night riding is a whole different animal and I don't recommend doing it, unless you have years of experience riding a bike. Even then, you need about $1,500 worth of lights for the bike, A few extra hundred for illuminated clothing. People who drive cars at night are more dangerous than those in daytime, IMHO, and more of them are DRUNK at night.

I will say -

1) DON"T ride to work on your bicycle.

2) DON'T ride at night.


Things have changed out there and it's not as safe(?) as it used to be...

I would think people either respect your area or they don't. The light won't help.

I've ridden to work and I've ridden at night. They're not a lot of fun, but I've managed it.

I have to get a new bike, mine was stolen out of the basement by my *#*#&#& downstairs neighbors (who have since disappeared.)
