Charleston Moves Offering Free Bike Light Sets During "Light the Night" Event

On Friday, January 27th, Charleston Moves will host "Light The Night 3.0," a free bike light set giveaway in downtown Charleston.

Getting your free bike light set is super easy. All you have to do is pedal to Hampstead Square between 5 pm and 7 pm and Charleston Moves will hook you up with a set and their “Better Streets, Better Ride” spoke cards. The card feature tips for riding smart and knowing your rights as a Charleston bicyclist. In addition, volunteers will strap light sets to bikes parked and passing through the Eastside neighborhood.

When it comes time to replace these lights, stop by your local bike shop for a new set. Remember — solid white in front, blinking red in back.

Hampstead Square is located at the corner of Columbus and America Streets. For more information on the event, visit the Facebook event page.
