Being visible to other traffic is one of the most important ways bike-riders can help prevent vehicle collisions.

To help make more bike-riders visible after dark, we established the Light On! bike light giveaway program. Giving away bike lights is a direct and cost-effective way to improve safety for everyone on the road.

Our first light giveaway was in December 2006, after daylight savings time began. Volunteers at various locations flagged down bike-riders without lights and installed lights on their bikes for free. The annual wintertime giveaway continued through 2011.

We’re currently looking for sponsors to help underwrite the purchase of more lights, so we can resume the giveaways and hold them more often.
