Whether I'm cycling on a highway shoulder, in urban traffic, or on a group training ride, I find a cycling mirror to be indepensable. When I'm on a group ride I'm surprised by the few riders that use them.

Before totally bashing the idea of wearing one, see if you can try one first. you may have to borrow a friends.

Ok now, let's hear your pros and cons. I'm curious and eager to respond.

neither I nor any of my riding partners use a mirror.

my eyes, rotatable head, and hearing provide all the situational awareness needed to assess what's behind me.
Why wouldn't you be riding as far to the right as possible, consistent with safety, to start with? :confused:
replace 'possible' with 'practical' and you might be on to something...
