Sponsor a Light Set
Have you noticed an increase of people biking without lights at night? As the days get shorter, this is likely going to become more of an issue. Would you like to sponsor light sets to get folks lit? There are so many new riders this year, and we'd like to use this as an opportunity to keep folks safe and welcome new riders to the bike fam.
We've sourced a pretty solid mid-range set of bike lights for around $10 per set. We order lights in bulk after we 200 sets have been sponsored. We will then give the lights away for FREE to riders who do not have lights.
[ BATCH 2 ] 9/28 update - 80 of the 200 lights have been sponsored. Once 200 are sponsored, we will order the next batch of lights.
[ BATCH 1 ] 9/27 update - All 200 lights have been fully sponsored and are currently being dispersed around Chicago. Follow along on social media for updates.
- Each set purchased = 1 set for us to donate (you will not physically receive this order)
- Light set includes 1 red light (back) and one white light (front)
- Lights are around 200 lumen (front) and about 80 lumen (back)
- Lights feature high beams, low beams, and two flashing strobe settings
- Set is USB rechargeable
- Set includes USB cords
Let us know if cities outside of Chicago would like to do light giveaways. Because these have batteries, shipping is a bit expensive, but we can figure out what's needed for bulk orders. Let us know if you have any questions. Hello@BikeLaneUprising.com
