The phantom cyclist
There is a children's book called The Phantom Cyclist, although I don't remember anything about it. The cyclists who go around like mad in the dark here look exactly like that. Phantoms, with pale-blue flashing lights. Uncanny. Today I was one myself. It wasn't half as bad as I had expected. Actually, it was ok, but for the rain. Anyone who wears glasses knows how helpless you are in the rain, whether you bike or walk.
