My back is getting so stiff

Today I was backing up my little truck rather preciselyand I realized that all the ways I used to look back didn’t work anymore.  After I scratched off over the seat and open the driver’s door to look back, I realized how poorly the mirrors were.

I’m not much better at looking back on a bicycle.

B&W cameras are getting cheap. Less than $20 I think. I have trouble looking back even with a mirror. Has anyone mounted a camera on their bike to observe the rear?

  3. Interesting concept that Cerevellum. But if I were going to use it for “accident recording” I’d point the camera forward.* Waay more crashes involve vehicles coming from the front and side.

    * But that would seem like such a waste of technology and batteries. In over 160,000 miles of cycling I’ve been slightly bumped once. Now, if I were a sidewalk cyclist….
