When asked about his decision to join Flare, Barger expressed his enthusiasm, stating, "I'm incredibly excited to collaborate with the Flare team in their quest to Protect the World, one journey at a time.As both a devoted cyclist and a father to a fearless 2-year-old daughter, I am acutely aware of the risks faced by VRUs on the road. My own experience of being involved in an accident due to the all-too-common 'I didn't see you' scenario emphasises the urgent need for innovative safety solutions."
