Bike Lights

In an effort to equip as many of New York City’s booming bicycle commuter population with adequate lighting for riding at night as possible, the Department of Transportation will be handing out free bike lights at two of the city’s busiest bridge ramps tonight between 5-6:30pm: the Manhattan side of the Williamsburg Bridge (Delancey at Clinton) and the Queens side of the Queensboro Bridge (Crescent Street at Bridge Plaza North). Bike lights can be pretty expensive (no word on what kind the DOT will be giving out), and even if you’ve got some you could always use more, so stop by and pick up a a free light—and thank the bicycle gods for sending us Janette Sadik-Khan.
