Additionally, I was sent this link and found it pretty interesting. It is not the whole story of why cyclists are not always seen on the road, yet it is at least a little part of it... It works exactly like it says, and is one major reason people in cars can 'look right at you' (when you're on a motorcycle or bicycle)---AND "NOT SEE YOU".
