As the time has shifted away from Daylight Savings Time, and we’ve lost an hour of daylight, San Francisco bicycle commuters are increasingly riding home in the dark!. To alleviate the problems that this can cause (i.e. getting in an accident with a car, pedestrian, or another bike), the San Francisco Municipal Transit Authority and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition are giving away 2000 free bike lights.
You can pick up your free bike lights, and learn more about the program, by visiting the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition’s Light Up the Night web sit.. Stations will be set up at various bike-trafficked locations throughout the city.
Now if only someone could get helmets on the rest of the cyclists who insist on going bare-domed!
