Maybe your next bike gadget should be a pool noodle.

Could a brightly colored foam tube make you safer on the bike?

When I opened my homepage to login to email, my eyes drifted to a photo on one of Google’s suggested articles.

A cyclist with a pool noodle strapped to the back of their bike. The headline reads “Why every cyclist needs a pool noodle.”

Continuing to peak my interest, I learned that the author suggests using a brightly colored noodle to create a wider bike width and an added visual to indicate to vehicles that you need your space. She also suggests that it is a nice conversation starter and way to educate drivers about etiquette towards cyclists.

Intriguing idea for rides on busy roads. Ready to continue the trend? Maybe someday it will be common.
