We've had a couple of stories about the Light Lane and the Laser and they seem to capture folks' imagination. So I was very pleased to see this morning that there's a working prototype of the Light Lane on YouTube!

Okay, so it doesn't have the little bike symbol on the road behind the rider, but it's a start! Would this kind of device make you safer at night, or less so? Discuss!

In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.
