The link is to a bicycle article I just read a few minutes ago.
It is quite interesting as I am always on the look out for ways to be more visible and safe while biking on country roads as well as city and town streets.
I like to strap a Skyriter on my bike or carry one in my panniers and take a ride to a local park or trail for some quiet outdoors typing.
I've lived in many places with narrow roads and very hilly terrain. In this area of Michigan we have hills, hills, and more hills, and blind spots everywhere. The country roads generally do not have a shoulder. (neither did they in Pennsylvania or Virginal of Florida) A bright lime green pool noodle seems a good addition to my lime green vest and flashing red high intensity LED tail light.

Happy & safe bicycle riding and typing.
