Night Biking

Within the last 6 months, there has been a number of deaths from cyclists getting hit by cars at night. This is just a reminder to make sure you have a white front light and red rear light. When riding on the roads it’s essential to be seen at all times, especially at night. Adding a reflective vest can easily help drivers see you better. If you are properly set up for night riding make sure your friends are as well.
