    I would suggest getting some lights that make you be seen, like powerful LED ones. They are bright and they certainly advertise your presence.

    As for the longer days, the sun is setting past 4pm in the UK now while a week earlier it was setting at 3:45pm. It's kind of a shame really.

    The less daylight the more people should use lighting equipment as they are outside in the dark. It helps other notice you in the traffic and may prevent you from getting hit.

    It's starting to get a lot brighter for longer now. This time a month ago it was dark by 4 in the afternoon. Now it's getting dark at 5 in the afternoon. Natural I know but I always get a little sad when the days start getting longer.

    I'm from the Philippines and 365 days a year, sunrise is between 5am-6am and sunset is between 5:30pm - 6:30pm. Basically it's sunny at 6AM and very dark at 7PM.
