The daily commute is getting awfully dark out there. Do you have enough lights and reflectors on your bike? Can your fellow road users see you? If you’ve ever wondered how you appear to drivers or other bike riders, come join us for a fun and illuminating evening where you can test and show off your lighting system and compare them to others.
Bring your bike, blinkies and blingiest lighting gear, reflective clothing, spoke lights and whatever else lights up your dark commute to our annual Lights and Reflectors clinic, and we’ll show you just how effective or ineffective your lighting system and reflectors are.
We’ll ride out into the darkest corners of Magnuson Park and put your gear to the test with high and low beams of a car.
We will be putting on your gear and ride your bike while you sit in the driver’s seat and see exactly how you appear — or disappear — into the void.
Meet up at the Cascade office, 7400 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 14 for a brief discussion, before we ride out into the dark for the test.
