What equipment is required when riding a bicycle in Michigan?

The required equipment includes brakes, spoke reflectors, reflective pedals. When biking on a roadway at night in Michigan (defined as between ½ hour after sunset and ½ hour before sunrise), you must have a headlamp installed on the front of your bike that emits a white light that can be visible at least 500 feet to the front. You are also required to have a red reflector on the rear of your bike that is visible from 100 to 600 feet. All of this equipment is worn for the safety of the biker, in hopes to prevent serious injuries in a bicycle accident.
