Now I always try to be careful as I ride. I frequently make use of the mirrors and, when changing lanes, I will always turn my head briefly to double check and make sure a cage is not in my blind spot. But when the sun is low in the sky, the resource of using the mirrors becomes ineffective.
One thing I have thought about as I ride west in the morning is that drivers (and riders) traveling east will have the sun in their eyes.
Can they see me?
Particularly if they want to make a left turn?
I have been trying to take that into account as I ride west in the morning.
With the sun low in the sky, shadows become very long. Can make for an interesting picture, even if taken with the Blackberry.
