Bike Coalition to Give Away Free Bike Lights to Stay Safe During Dark Commuting Hours

Bike Coalition to Give Away Free Bike Lights to Stay Safe During Dark Commuting Hours
Two-wheeled commuters to light the night for Daylight Savings

WHAT: In conjunction with shorter days and Daylight Savings time, the Bike Coalition invited two-wheeled travelers to collect free bike lights and important safety information about riding in the dark.

WHY: With the Daylight Savings transition on November 6, bike commuters will soon find themselves pedaling to and from work when the sun has gone down. With proper bike lights, all two-wheeled travelers can ride safely, remain visible to others sharing the roads and follow the state law, which mandates front and rear lights when pedaling in the dark.

WHERE/WHEN:
Thursday, November 3 -- 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Chula Vista Farmer’s Market (Third Avenue and Center Street)
In partnership with the City of Chula Vista’s Recreation Department and the Third Avenue Village Association as a part of the year-long Walk + Bike Chula Vista campaign

Thursday, November 10 -- 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Officer Jeremy Henwood Memorial Park (3700 Fairmount Ave.)
In partnership with the San Diego County Police Department and the California Office of Traffic Safety
