The end of Daylight Savings Time is nearly upon us! There’s often an uptick in traffic crashes after the time change, so WABA is spending next week distributing bicycle lights. Our goal is to get bicycle lights in the hands (and onto the handlebars) of folks who are riding without them. If you’ve already got bike lights but still want to be part of the fun, stop by to pick up a pair to give away next time you see someone who needs them. If you are interested in helping the DC Bike Ambassadors distribute these lights please join us at one of our pop up locations next week:
Here’s where we’ll be 11/7 -11/10:
- Monday, 5-7pm we’re at 15th & P Street NW
- Tuesday, 5-7pm we’re at Union Station (The First Street protected bike lane, in front of the Postal Museum)
- Wednesday 5-7pm we’re at 3201 Benning Rd NE
- Thursday 5-7pm we’re at the Key Bridge, on the Georgetown Side.
When you’re riding on a trail, be aware of the angle of your front light. Modern LEDs can be quite bright, and you don’t want to blind on coming trail users.
