The VeloCityLight is designed to make cycling safer.  It is a powerful rear LED light that displays your speed to drivers and makes you bright, distinct and visible on the road.  We want to help ave lives.

Why display your speed?

When vehicles approach  cyclists from behind, the cyclists are at the mercy of the drivers' ability and awareness.  For drivers, it can be hard to judge how fast a cyclist is going. We think that showing an approaching motorist your speed will make them think, and help them make better decisions. Maybe you're doing 15mph in a 30mph zone and they'll think twice about how fast they're approaching. Maybe you're at the limit in a 20mph zone and they realise they shouldn't try to overtake you. Or maybe you're downhill at high speed on a country road, and they realise they're going to have to allow more time to pass you. Or maybe you just like showing off your speed to other cyclists!

The Velocitylight is a multifunctional rear display showing not only the cyclists speed but also acts as a brake light when the cyclist slows down quickly.

We are raising money on Kickstarter to fund production and we need all the support we can get in the last few days of the campaign.

@velocitylight

I've been cycling for over 30 years and have had many near misses with cars side swiping me as they overtake. I've been lucky not to be badly injured, but many people i have known or know have not been so lucky. I'd like to make cyclists safer by making drivers think differently as they approach cyclists so I invented the VeloCityLight.
