Free bike lights to be handed out to cyclists in Dublin this week

The free bike lights will be handed out as part of a new safety campaign.

Independent voluntary group Dublin Cycling will take to the streets of Dublin this week to hand out free spare bike lights to cyclists.

As the nights get darker (it's almost pitch-black at 5pm these days), it's important that cyclists are as visible as possible, and Dublin Cycling will be doing everything in their power to help.

They shared a video on their Twitter page announcing that they will be out on the streets, as part of their new #LightUpYourBike campaign.

Take a look:

Dublin Cycling are a voluntary group who aim to bring about improved conditions for cyclists and greater recognition of the benefits of cycling.

Other campaigns that the group have taken part in the past include ‘Tackling Bike Theft’, ‘Love 30km/h’ and #freethecyclelanes.
