Have you ever wanted to try riding at night, but are reluctant to invest in lighting? Come to this special event and learn what you need to know to safely ride your bike during cool evenings & nights, instead of the heat of the day.
Club Secretary Bob McHenry will present a short talk about bicycle lighting and night time riding safety. Cygolite, an Orange County bicycle lighting systems manufacturer and a BCI club sponsor, will present an overview of their product line & provide loaners to demonstrate their products. Then we’ll mount lighting on members’ bikes, and we will do a no-drop fun ride of about 20 miles at an easy pace with a dinner stop.
Cygolite has generously offered to raffle some lighting at the end of this ride!
(You need to be a current BCI member to participate in the raffle.)
Cygolite can outfit 20 riders with lights to try out night riding. No sales pitch or direct sales at this event, just good information and night time riding fun. If you already have lighting for your bicycle, you are welcome & encouraged to participate in these events too. A light jacket will help when we stop for dinner & if the evening is cool. Questions about this ride: email Bob at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: If your bicycle does not have pedal and spoke reflectors, BCI recommends purchasing an inexpensive set of reflective ankle straps for the event. They can be purchased at most bicycle shops for $5-10 per pair. California Vehicle Code requirements, and other recommendations and suggestions for riding safely at night will be discussed at the event.
