FABB receives grant for bike light giveaway

Many cyclists in Fairfax depend on bicycles for transportation. Some of these cyclists do not have bicycle lights, which are required by Virginia law on all bicycles ridden after dark. FABB recently applied for a grant from the Transurban and Fluor Community Grant Program for the Capital Beltway Project to purchase bike lights to be given to area bicyclists who cannot afford lights. We received funding and will hold events during the last week of October and first week of November to hand out the lights and safety information. If you would like to volunteer at one of these events, or have ideas about the giveaway events, please contact us at chairman (at) fabb-bikes (dot) org.


Just out of curiosity, what types of lights do you actually give away (as in brand/model)?

The technology for lights seems to change a lot these days, and the prices for decent lights have been tumbling..
We'll have the Blinkey Safety Set from Planet Bike. They are small but surprisingly bright and affordable. WABA is using the same lights for their giveaway. Planet Bike is known for their support for bicycle advocacy; they give 25% of their profits to improve conditions for bicycling.
