Given we have so many outdoor enthusiasts in Colorado, bike and pedestrian safety is paramount. To this end, it’s essential for everyone biking or walking to have lights, so they can see where they’re going and, more importantly, for drivers to see them coming. As fall sets in and there is less daylight, the City of Boulder, the University of Colorado Boulder, Community Cycles and SharedPaths Boulder are gearing up for the annual Lighten Up Boulder walk and bicycle safety campaign to encourage the use of lights, when walking and riding during the day and at night.
Stop by the multi-use path west of the Municipal Building (1777 Broadway St.) in Boulder, near 11th Ave. and Canyon, from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., on Thursday, November 7 for a FREE pedestrian and bike light giveaway.
Pick up complimentary pedestrian and bike lights, as well as talk to program ambassadors about how to be safe on the road.
If you are unable to attend, pick up lights at:
GO Boulder — 1101 Arapahoe Ave. (on the second floor)
Community Cycles — 2601 Spruce St. Unit B (entrance near alley)
