Bike Light Giveaway
Submitted by the City of Evanston


The City of Evanston will hold its fourth annual “Pedal Bright” Bike Light Giveaway and Installation event on Tuesday, November 7.

The bike safety initiative will help cyclists increase the visibility of their bikes as the days get shorter during the fall and winter seasons. Teams of volunteers will install a limited number of free bicycle lights, distribute bike safety guidebooks, and provide a quick tutorial on the rules of the road for bicyclists.

Bicycle lights will be installed while supplies last on Tuesday, November 7, from 2:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m., at two Evanston locations:

  • Evanston Township High School, near the bike racks at Church Street and Wildkit Drive
  • The Weber Arch at Northwestern University, Chicago Avenue and Sheridan Road

The morning and afternoon hours are often peak times for bicycle traffic on local roadways. Later sunrises and earlier sunsets make visibility especially important for both bicycle commuters and recreational cyclists. Bicyclists in need of lights are encouraged to have a light installed at one of the locations.

Illinois law requires that every bicycle when in use at nighttime be equipped with a front lamp capable of emitting a white light visible from a distance of at least 500 feet, and a red reflector on the rear visible from 100 to 600 feet. A lamp emitting a red light visible from a distance of 500 feet to the rear may be used in addition to a red reflector.

For more information, please call/text 847-448-4311. For convenience, residents in Evanston may simply dial 3-1-1.
