Free Bike Lights — If You Can Find Them

Daylight savings in fall is a double-edged sword: That extra hour of sleep two Sundays ago was extremely welcome, but now, when commuters leave work, it's dusk — and darkening fast.

For those who commute on two wheels, that can mean already-treacherous interactions with cars and other vehicles just got even riskier. But one way to ensure you make it home — and complying with the law while you're at it — is to get the proper lights on your bike.

From today through Dec. 15, the SFMTA and the SF Bicycle Coalition will be handing out 2,000 bike lights and disseminating bike safety information at pop-up locations around the city, targeting bicycle riders who travel during dark hours as part of their annual “Light up the Night” project.
