Light Up The Night 2019: Free Bike Light Campaign | SF
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is proud to present Light up the Night, an annual bike light distribution campaign, alongside the generous sponsors, Bay Area Bicycle Law and Sunset Heights Association of Responsible People (SHARP).
With the amazing volunteers, we install hundreds of white front lights and red backlights on bicycles for people riding in the dark. To make sure that the bicycle lights go to those who need them the most, we keep the distribution locations a secret.
- Thursday, November 7 | 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
- Tuesday, November 19 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
- Thursday, December 5 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
To make sure that the bicycle lights go to those who need them the most, they keep the distribution locations a secret.
Sign up to volunteer – volunteer roles include helping direct those riding by to their pop-up station, installing front and back lights, spreading important safety information and signing up new members.
A white front light and red rear reflector (or light) are required by law when riding at night, yet some cyclists either cannot afford lights or are not aware of the law. The “Light up the Night” campaign will target these cyclists by issuing free lights and talking with them about the importance of always using lights at night.
This campaign is to reach cyclists in need without lights to get them. Please don’t abuse the program. If you already have a light, don’t hide it just to get a new one. This is safety promotion.
