I love how small this light is. I often just leave it on the bar. Then if I get stuck in the dark I can be seen by cars and get home. This light is so cars can see you. Not much good for seeing the road in the dark. It is bright enough it could get you home in a pinch but you would have to go slow and it would not be much fun. If you need a light to see the street on your bike then spend more money and get a real light. It is about the size of a wrist watch face.
