Paying it forward

This is a picture of Lea with a Bike Light Foundation light on her backpack.  She had forgotten her bike light that night.  Lea was really positive and promised to pay it forward to help someone else who needs a light.

Test order of new lights

Recently arrived - an order of some new bike lights to give away.  There was a big price increase on the clip-on lights but some online research revealed these front and rear bike lights which seem like they will work well!


Bike Light for a Fixie

Here is Jose, who was glad to get a bike light for his fixie.  He was pleasantly surprised and happy to hear that we have an organization like the Bike Light Foundation that is giving away bike lights.

Report from the Bike Church

Steve from the Bike Church relayed a nice story.  He mentioned how he was recently helping provide a free helmet to a homeless cyclist (something the Bike Church does).  When he asked about lights, the cyclist mentioned that 'some guy had just given him a bike light.'

It turns out that the cyclist had received one of our Bike Light Foundation lights.  So it's nice to know that there's a cyclist who is now newly helmeted and lighted!



[Note - the Bike Light Foundation provides lights to anyone who is in need of a light (it's not based on income or any other qualifications - simply if someone doesn't have a light).]
