    Well 2800lumen of front lights and 4 rear LED lights (including a Holy Handgrenade) and a Flashing LED tabbard thingy should be enough to make sure that any Audi driver can see me.

    Have fun!

    I used to do 40 miles a day. It was pancake flat mind. Avoiding rush hour was the best bit. On the bike by 6am without fail.

    No Audi driver will see you if he is 6″ behind the BMW in front.

    Just out of interest, what do all you bike into work commuters do for a living?

    Desk job innit? Couldn’t do it if I had a manual job like a brickie or something, or needed to lug a lot of equipment or materials around with me.

    I only asked as i am a plumber but could leave my van at work and cycle but i would be shattered after 2 days!

    Had a summer job while at Uni as a Glazier’s mate. Rode 10 miles a day to/from work. 10-hour day, 6 days a week. Knackering, and I was a lot fitter back then too.

    For me now, commuting is pretty much the only daily exercise I get.

    Office job (not always at a desk, but very limited exercise in my job).

    Made it home.

    The Audi drivers were VERY polite, esp the Q7 driver who waited 3 mins to get to a safe spot before overtaking.
