Reflective Leg & Arm Bands

Be seen while you pedal at night and keep your pants legs out of the chain with our new leg bands!

These things are terrific: Reflective Leg & Arm Bands!  I actually bought 10 for myself and family, and wear 2 sets when I’m out and about on the bike (one on each ankle, one on each forearm). Some other Strollers & Rollers report they find theirs handy when running or walking in the wee hours, too!

They are lightweight, and just “snap” in place quickly.  Easy and convenient to leave around the seat-post of your bike as an additional reflector (and so where you know where to find them!).

Thanks to Rendez-Vous Cafe Bistro, who helped with funding, we were able to produce these 12″ long, reflective leg bands, to “keep your pant legs tight and you & your family bright” and allow us to ride and walk more safely as the days get shorter.

Thanks, Laurent at Rendez-Vous, for supporting AS&R and helping fund our newest safety project!

The drivers see my arm when I signal when I'm wearing this reflective band.

A suggested donation of $3 per band will help you be more visible to drivers when you’re riding and walking!

Contact Amy Smolens to pick some up for you and your family now! They make great gifts, too!
