Get Your Bike and Join the Light Club, Tonight at 6:00 PM

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

The first rule of Fight Club is… “you do not talk about Fight Club.” On the other hand, the first rule of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition‘s Light Club is… use your bike lights at night and feel free to tell everyone about it.

And today you’re in luck because you can join the club tonight for free all over San Francisco just by showing up at one of five locations. Click on the handy map here.

But speaking of rules, you need to bring your bike with you and it can’t have lights on it already. That’s it. Now you’re ready to queue up.

This was the scene last year, with Andy Thornley himself personally installing lights in front of the Ella Hill Hutch Community Center in the Fillmore:

  • Market St. @ Duboce
  • Howard St. @ 8th
  • Valencia St. @ Cesar Chavez
  • McAllister St. @ Webster
  • Polk St. @ California
  • “The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is teaming up with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency to promote safe night riding by distributing thousands of free bike lights to those who can’t afford or don’t have access to them. SFBC volunteers will be installing lights along the city’s major bike corridors on Tuesday, December 2nd from 6-7pm. We are working to increase rider visibility in the darkening winter hours, and lights are a key piece of safety gear! Check out for locations and information on how to volunteer. Spread the word to your friends and neighbors who are riding in the dark!

    We are specifically targeting cyclists who do not have lights, you must bring your bicycle to receive the free lights.”

    See you there!
