I commute about 1/2 of the time for about 8 months of the year. I actually add miles for my bike commute because it's a safer route. Almost 9-10 miles each way to work on my bike commute (vs. 8 on my drive). Winter is just not safe enough to risk commuting. Michigan is too snowy and icey and a few of the roads I use cars can get up to 60mph on. Too many killed bicyclist - mostly from cell phone/text drivers.

I use the Moab night rider HID/LED light. Amazing! I have a blackburn Mar 3.0 tail light (3 way for visibility). I'm planning on adding some reflective tape to the fenders.
