BikeHouston’s Light Distribution Ride @ BikeHouston Office
Dec 12 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

BikeHouston

BikeHouston wants to make sure everyone riding around at night is able to be seen.

Meet at the BikeHouston Office at 6:00 pm and we will start the ride at 6:30 pm.

The ride will consist of group/teams of two or more people in different parts of the city to handout lights to people riding without them.


The areas we will send people to are:

  • 3rd Ward
  • Northside/Near North
  • Heights
  • EastEnd
  • Downtown
  • Museum
  • Montrose
  • Washington
  • Med-Center

It will work to your advantage if you are familiar with these areas of town.


BikeHouston has the lights available so you do not need to bring anything but yourself (unless you have extra lights you would like to give).

The goal is to help and educate people that are out riding their bikes about how important it is to be seen when riding at night.

Bring a friend or come make a new one on this ride, and let’s have some fun!
