For the 5th year in a row, we’re teaming up with Commute Seattle on a Light Up Your Ride event this Thurs. Nov. 2, 7–9 AM at Lake Union Park, right next to the Westlake bike path. It’s a free event, focused on safety and visibility. Oh, and…
THERE. WILL. BE. COFFEE!
We’ll have free bike lights (front and rear) that are also handy to strap on to strollers, walkers, wheelchairs, backpacks, and keychains. Also, did we say FREE COFFEE and snacks, free bike repairs, and other giveaways!
Light Up Your Ride is one small, but critical, component of our Vision Zero initiative to end traffic deaths and serious injuries on city streets by 2030. Events like this also support our long-term efforts to make bicycling in Seattle easier and more comfortable for people of all ages and abilities.
With daylight savings around the corner (set those clocks back this Sunday, Nov. 5), we’ll gain one extra hour of sleep, and a whole lot more darkness. Yay. As this time of year rolls around, it’s even more important to see and be seen. Stay safe, Seattle!
