Lighten Up Boulder Safety Campaign

Cycling can be a great way to travel all year around. However, as fall sets in and daytime light is reduced, visibility is very important especially when riding at night. There are a few simple things that you can do to ensure that you and your bike are prepared for riding this winter. The City of Boulder, Community Cycles, and the University of Colorado (CU) team up every year to encourage the use of bike lights for nighttime riding by giving out free lights.

Need a bike light? Or a pedestrian light?

In November we’ll be handing out bike and pedestrian lights during several giveaway events across town.

Stop by any of the following events between 4-6 p.m. and get a free set of lights!

  • Monday, Nov. 5 at Boulder Creek Path (west of Broadway)
  • Wednesday, Nov. 7 at Skunk Creek Path (south of Arapahoe Ave.)
  • Tuesday, Nov. 13 at Goose Creek Path (west of Foothills Pkwy, close to Wilderness Pl.)
  • Wednesday, Nov. 14 at Broadway/Euclid (bike path east of Broadway)
  • Thursday, Nov. 15 at Elmer’s Two Mile Path (south of Glenwood)
  • Monday, Nov. 26 at Bear Creek Path (just east of 36, close to CU)
  • Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 30th and Colorado
  • Monday, Dec. 3 at Williams Village (near bus stop south of Baseline)

All events are weather dependent and can therefore be cancelled last minute.

Need lights today? Stop by Community Cycles or City of Boulder office to get a set of lights.
