Overall, pretty good graphic. Good emphasis on lights and reflective surfaces. Also good emphasis on not overdressing on your core, but protecting your extremities.

I like to wear reflective ankle straps too, and/or reflective tape on your heels.

If you can bring yourself to be less concerned about pedaling efficiency and use plain flat pedals instead, you can wear any footware you want, like warm boots.
