In an effort to promote bicycle safety in Evanston, the City of Evanston will hold its “Pedal Bright” Bike Light Giveaway and Installation event from 4 to 6 p.m. on Oct. 13.

This initiative will provide bicycle safety information and help bicyclists 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 City bike maps, and answer questions on rules of the road for bicyclists at two locations: Gibbs-Morrison Cultural Center, 1823 Church St., and the Weber Arch at Northwestern University, Chicago Avenue at Sheridan Road.
