The Light It Up Project & it's Impact
BikeDFW's Bike Light Giveaway Program
Light It Up is BikeDFW’s initiative to share front and rear bicycle light sets with riders with unlit bikes through giveaways at pop up events throughout the year! All unlit cyclists who pass by our pop up go home with a bicycle light set and a set to share with someone they see riding unlit, and any cyclist that wants to take a set to share when they are out on the road and see someone unlit, are asked to take a set also. We also share lights with Bike Friendly groups to share with their community too.
Since 2019 BikeDFW has given away more than 1200 free front and rear bike lights to the community!! We care about riders’ safety and education, and this is one of the most direct ways that we can interact with our community to provide that assistance.
Riding without lights not only makes bicyclists near-invisible in the dark, but it is also a ticketable offense. Lightless riding is risky, and whether people are simply unaware or they cannot afford lights, we want to be sure that they are covered.
Consider making a contribution to BikeDFW today to help us get even more lights out to the community!
