Be a Light Angel


16/12/2016



We launched the ‘Be a Light Angel’ campaign two weeks ago and had already over 40 volunteers willing to pass on bike lights to other cyclists riding without lights. One volunteer called them ‘darkies’.

 

Thank you to everyone who is already taking part.

 

Due to popular demand we are extending the campaign for a few more days until Wednesday 21 December!

 

For those of you who haven’t heard,  we’re giving out a bunch of light sets to generous cyclists who are willing to stop their lightless peers and  give them a set. We’re calling them our Light Angels. As the days are getting darker much more quickly, we’d also like to raise awareness amongst cyclists of the importance of using lights at night. It is certainly a safety issue, but also a legal issue as you have to, by law, have a front white light and rear red light on your bike.

 

Until Wednesday 21 December 2016, if you’d like the chance to pass on some of our lights to other cyclists and you live, work, study or cycle through the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, then sign up to be a Light Angel and we’ll post 3 sets of lights to you to get you started.

 

To sign up to be a Light Angel, all you have to do is:

 

email us at cycling@rbkc.gov.uk putting ‘Light Angels’ in the subject line and include your postal address

 

We’ll then get in touch…

 

We’d also love to see selfies of your ‘Light Angels moments’. So feel free to tweet a selfie of you and your light set recipient(s) using @BikemindedRBKC or the hashtag #LightAngel. And we will retweet it.

 

Please note that you can contact us for lights to be a Light Angel while stocks last until 21 December 2016.
