Over 1,400 sets of bike lights have been sponsored!!!!
Have you noticed an increase of people biking without lights at night? Would you like to sponsor light sets to get these folks lit? We've sourced a pretty solid mid-range set of USB rechargeable bike lights for around $10 per set. These lights are same level of quality and brightness we would be comfortable biking with ourselves. Every sponsored set of lights equals one set we will give away to a cyclist without lights.

Current status: OVER 1,400 sets of bike lights have been sponsored!!!!
We will continue to make these available for sponsorship via our online store. We will order the lights sets in batches of 200. So far we've given away bike lights in Chicago, Minneapolis, and DC. We are currently raising funds for bike light giveaways in Nashville and the San Francisco Bay Area. Sponsor a set of lights here
Bike Light Sponsors
We've been keeping the price of lights down and finding those in need by handing lights out in person out on the streets at night. Even when Chicago was the only location lights had been distributed, lights were sponsored from cyclists around the US as well as the UK! Further proof we're one big biking fam.

Here's how lights
have been dispersed so far:
We've been dropping lights off at local bike shops, many of which have even sponsored lights! So far, we've dropped off lights to Working Bikes, Irv's Bike Shop, Blue City Cycles, West Town Bikes, Goodspeed Cycles, BFF Bikes, and Bike Lane Chicago. Sponsor a set of lights here
Giveaway blitz events - Lakefront path
We held a giveaway blitz on the Lakefront path where we flagged down any cyclist riding without lights. The lakefront is a beacon to so many people and we taught around 50 cyclists, a couple of rollerbladers, and sooooo many cute kids how to use bike lights. Sponsor a set of lights here
Giveaway blitz events - food couriers
We've also conducted bike light giveaway blitz events that specifically target food couriers. So many couriers have said their lights are stolen frequently. Since the lights we're giving out can either be attached to bikes or clipped on, couriers are able to attach lights directly to their clothes and bags - hopefully this helps cut down on theft.

We've been working with biking groups to help get lights to their members and cyclists in their areas. Shown below are representatives of Streets Calling BC and the Monday Night Ride. Sponsor a set of lights here
We've assembled street teams to help disperse lights into neighborhoods. Our street team members keep the lights on them as they bike around the city and hand them out as they run into folks without lights. Sponsor a set of lights here
