Get a Free Pedestrian or Bike Light Through the Lighten Up Boulder Safety Campaign

Pick up free pedestrian and bike lights and talk to walk and bike ambassadors about safety at our upcoming event light distribution.

As fall sets in and there is less daylight, the City of Boulder, the University of Colorado Boulder, Community Cycles and SharedPaths Boulder are gearing up for the annual Lighten Up Boulder walk and bicycle safety campaign to encourage the use of lights when walking and riding during the day and at night. 

Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019

On the multi-use path west of the Municipal Building, near 11th Avenue and Canyon

4:30 – 5:30 p.m.

If you are unable to attend the pedestrian and bike light giveaway, you can pick up lights at the GO Boulder offices, 1101 Arapahoe Ave., second floor, or Community Cycles at 2601 Spruce St. Unit B (entrance near alley).

Watch for more Lighten Up Boulder pedestrian and bike light give away events to be held in December.

Lighten Up Boulder is one of the City of Boulder’s Vision Zero safety initiatives. Vision Zero is the bold goal to eliminate all severe traffic crashes involving people using all modes of travel. Through the 4 E’s— Engineering, Education, Enforcement, and on-going Evaluation, we strive to design and operate a transportation system focused on travel safety and comfort.
