Bike Light Giveaway

October 29 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Put on a mask and roll up (on your bike) to the San Diego Central Library to get some bike lights!

Why do we do a yearly bike light giveaway?

The end of day light savings  is at 2am on November 1st this year. To ensure that all you bike riders are staying safe and seen out there on the roads with the shorter day light hours we give away free bike lights.

Are they really free?

Yes! The silicone blinky lights shown here are FREE to anyone who arrives WITH A BICYCLE. (No, you can not drive to the event to get your free bike lights, we want to make sure that these lights are being used by bike riders who need them.)

But hang on! This year our friends from LightMeUp Safety Lights will be joining us too! They’ll be selling and installing wheel lights! These lights are $10 per wheel and installation is included.

We’re excited to announce that we’re sweetening up the event with our favorite local juice company, Suja Juice! So while you’re waiting for LightMeUp Safety Lights to make your bike rad with some fresh new wheel lights, check out Suja Juice and see what they’ve got to offer in the way of delicious and sustainable products!

What about COVID-19?

This is an outdoor distribution event. Every one who is working, volunteering and/or picking up bike lights is required to wear a face covering. Please follow posted signs and markings to ensure that you are keeping a safe distance from other attendees.

Hand sanitizer will be available and there will be public bathrooms nearby.

If you feel unwell or have a fever/cough please stay home to protect yourself and others.

What do I need to be legal on the road at night?

This may sound crazy but to be totally legal on the roads at night you need to have a front white light, a red rear light and reflectors on the front, back, wheels and pedals…

Check out our video below to learn more about being safe and seen on the road (day or night).

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Los fondos para este programa fueron proporcionados por una beca del California Office of Traffic Safety, a través del National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
