Bike Lights Program

GREAT FOR GIFTS!!
AS&R has partnered with  Fun Source LLC to make these versatile rear bike lights available to school kids and to you! For each Safety Light that you buy, an Albany student gets one free! For just $8 each, or $15 for two (that’s 50% off MSRP,) you get a bright red rear light with three blinking modes, a clip and a quick-off bike mount.

Our AS&R version  supports a good, grass-roots advocacy cause promoting bike-ped safety for children in our local community.  We appreciate your support of this great SR2S program by purchasing our lights through AS&R. To purchase or for more information, come to any of our events or contact Amy Smolens at calamari@alumni.duke.edu.

On  2009, 2010 and 2011 International Bike & Walk to School Days. AS&R members and school parents installed 150 free lights (each year, that is!) on the bikes of kids who rode to school – a huge success!

Help us give more kids lights by buying some for yourself or as gifts!  A copy of an article we wrote appears in the AS&R Documents page and on our International Bike & Walk to School Day page:  WT-November.pdf. Help kids and adults ride more safely and light up the Albany night!

FREE FRONT LIGHTS COURTESY OF SAFEWAY!
Thanks to Safeway’s generous donation to underwrite 1000 front lights over the past two years, we are now able to offer free front lights, MSRP value $39.99. For every light that we give away, an Albany school kid will get one free. We many front lights at the Arts & Green Festival and the Solano Stroll – we still have some available so come to an event or contact us!

At 2010 & 2011 International Bike & Walk to School Days, AS&R volunteers and school parents installed more than 400 front lights. This was a fantastic payoff to a great program!
