As the days get longer and your commute gets brighter, we are pleased to celebrate wrapping another season of Light up the Night, our annual bike light distribution program.
Thanks to our generous sponsor Bay Area Bicycle Law and support from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, our amazing member-volunteers installed nearly 1,000 front white lights and red rear lights on the bicycles of people riding at night.
We host this event every winter, starting in November when Daylight Savings Time ends and continuing through January when the days start to get longer. This season, 47 SF Bicycle Coalition member-volunteers donated over 160 hours of time to install lights at five different pop-up locations around San Francisco. Light recipients signed a pledge to use their lights at night and received educational materials about riding legally in the dark.
We want to give an enormous thank you to the amazing member-volunteers who helped make the event a success. We couldn’t do it without you. There are plenty more ways to get involved as a volunteer, so check out our upcoming projects to sign up.
