Whoever the skinny rider... on the skinny bike was on Wednesday, Jan 30th, on NW 231st Ave just s. of Cornell road... YOU ARE INSANE!

It was dawn-dark and you had no lights or reflectors and I only saw you due to a contrast from the lighter building behind you. You were no more than the dark silouete.

I was turning at left onto Cherry Lane before I got to you (you were stopped/standing at the NE-corner of Cherry and 231st), but the fact that I could not (not didn't- Couldn't!) see you makes me provide this warning and hopefully some discussion along the way.

Then again, you may well be the same rider I told that you were invisible at the stop sign one evening at dusk on an earlier encounter and you just snarled and rode on. If you have a death wish, I suggest you carry out your intentions in a different manner.

I'm a rider, I watch for cyclist and respect their space, please help me to keep you safe; use a light and some reflectors for pete's sake!

Reading this makes me wish for us all to light up as much as our budgets will allow. In fact, can't the fuzz give us a ticket if we are riding at dusk/dawn/night without lights?
