Biking blind is fun, in the same way that burning yourself with cigarettes is fun, but if you've had enough danger and would rather see than live life on the edge of unnecessary pain, you might want to investigate the Light & Motion Urban 500 Headlight. It's a slim, low-profile light that puts out 500 lumens via a Cree LED bulb, so you can see where you're going and other people can see you coming. Four modes give you the appropriate illumination for any condition, and the seriously water-resistant casing can withstand being submerged one meter deep for up to half an hour, so you can turn your bike into a short-range pedal-powered submarine if you really want to. Small amber ports on the side serve up 180-degree visibility, and a convenient battery-life indicator light lets you know when it's time to recharge the lithium ion battery.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
