Revolights Bike Lighting System

There is a bicycle light on the market that substantially increases the side visibility and clearly identifies the cyclist. It is called the Revolights Bike Lighting System, and it is mounted on the bicycle wheels with the help of special hardware. These are actually LED ring lights which ensure 360° visibility for bikes thus increasing cyclists’ safety. And they are perfectly legal. Men’s Journal called them “the best bike lighting system in the world”.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri, July 14, 1895

Don’t be a fright.

Don’t stop at road-houses.

Don’t say “Feel my muscle.”

Don’t cultivate “bicycle face.”

Don’t talk bicycle at the table.

Don’t go out after dark without a male escort.

Don’t chew gum. Exercise your jaws in private.

Don’t wear a garden-party hat with bloomers.

Don’t ask “what do you think of my bloomers?”

Don’t use bicycle slang. Leave that to the boys.

Don’t discuss bloomers with every man you know.

Don’t try to ride in your brother’s clothes to “see how it feels.”

Don’t ride a man’s wheel. The time has not come for that as yet.

Don’t carry a packet of cigarettes in the pocket of your pantalets.

Don’t sneer at the lawn tennis girl, or maybe she will not ask you to be a bridesmaid. 

Don’t scream loudly because you see a strange man in the field  - it may be a scarecrow.

Don’t lift up your skirts suddenly to astonish people by showing them your bloomers.
