Get Lights Tonight!


WABA staff and volunteers will be hitting the streets tonight from 4pm to 6:30pm to give out free bike lights!  Stop by on your commute home and get a new set of blinky red & white lights for your bike.  Staff and volunteers will only be putting lights on bikes without lights to ensure they go where they will do the most good.  If you have the means to purchase your own set, please do so and allow our lights to be used by those who cannot (Read this post for more about our change in strategy for giving away lights). Remember: a front white light and a red rear light (or a red reflector) are required by DC law!  Find the lights at the following places:

Locations (exact times and locations may vary)

  • Columbia Heights (14th St NW north of DCUSA)
  • Mt Pleasant (near 16th & Mt Pleasant St NW)
  • 11th St NW (near Cardozo HS)
  • Capital Hill (East Capital St & 4th St NE and Pennsylvania Ave & Potomac Ave SE)
  • Mt. Vernon Convention Center & Northeast DC (near the Metropolitan Branch Trail & Brookland)

The free bike light giveaway is sponsored by DDOT with support from District Hardware!
