Lights for Bikes is happening on 11/4. We'll need volunteers.

Clear your schedule.

Details to come.

Only one event this year? I seem to remember there being three last year...

Perhaps I didn't not say that the others aren't not happening? So yeah, more details to come.

WOD/Columbia Pike is another favorite. And if we have leftovers, where would the group like to see a third?

Did I miss seeing where the first was going to be held? Both the Intersection of Doom and Custis/W&OD junction events have been very popular the past two years and have high traffic volume.

Same bat-time, same bat-place. So yeah, Custis/Lynn/Lee.

Leftovers are good. Particularly with gravy. Just kidding.... but.... maybe we the ELITE-commuter community can facilitate leftovers by acquiring our own lights from our favorite LBS and using the BA blinkies for our evangelical "See and Be Seen" message? The less we take for ourselves, the more we can give to other people.

I always take 10 or so extras of both colors as I leave. They always manage to be given out over the next couple of months.

Months? Rarely takes me more than a couple of days to light up my fellow cyclists with those extras.

Wow, you stopped that many people that fast?

There's a fine line between lighting them up and a TSA pat down. :p

Shirlington Connector seems smart.

Now if you could just find a way to make the blinkies unattractive to kids, I might actually be able to keep one on my bike...

Bring them on Sunday, and they'll get their own!

I totally read that as "bikinis are in" and got really confused.
