Light the Night: Free Bike Light Distribution

Date: September 22, 2016 - 4:00pm to 7:00pm

Light the NightDo You Have Lights On Your Bicycle So You Can Ride At Night?

Illinois Rules of the Road requires that every bicycle, when in use at nighttime, must be equipped with a lamp on the front able to emit a white light visible from a distance of at least 500 feet AND a red reflector on the rear visible from 100-600 feet.

Come by with your bicycle during the annual “Light the Night” and we’ll install a free front light, rear light and rear reflector on your bike while supplies last. Light sets will only be installed on bicycles without lights.

  • When: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2016
  • Time: 4:00 P.M. TO 7:00 P.M.
