Night Rides and Lights – Stevenage and North Herts CTC Policy

The issue of lights was discussed at the last meeting and this is our agreed policy on the matter.

All participants on our evening and night rides must have suitable front and rear lights, so that they can be seen and meet road traffic regulations.
When riding on one of our rides; the lights must be switched to continuous illumination (not flashing). Flashing lights can be dangerous when riding in a group. Flashing lights can trigger a fit in riders with light sensitive epilepsy (we have at least one rider with light sensitive epilepsy). Flashing lights can also temporarily ‘blind’ following riders leading to accidents. (The only exception is the official sweeper who may use a flashing rear light to aid the safety of the whole group.)
