My hubby and I were riding through the rolling Leicestershire countryside towards Rutland Water on a recent Sunday morning ride when we were flashed twice by oncoming cars but not at all by the oncoming bikes.

Being cautious we slowed to just under the speed limit and after about half a mile came upon a sneaky camera van tucked on the verge, amongst the foliage.

My question to you is, would you flash to warn oncoming vehicles, either cars or bikes, of forthcoming hazards or do you leave people to their own devices

I’d be interested to know your thoughts.
