Organized By: Jane Healy/willow
Latest Activity: Oct 24, 2012
Jane Healy will give a presentation about how to make you and your bike more visible during the low-light months ahead. She will give a visibility presentation each time a new group of people arrives, so there's not a lecture schedule you need to worry about.
willow will sew/iron on reflective material to your clothing/gear.
This is a pop in whenever you want and stay for as long/little as you want sort of event so don't let the 5-9 p.m. timeframe scare you. :)
willow bought 20 strings of CycleLights in red, orange, green, blue, and white and 30 safety vests (two styles in a mix of L, XL, and XXL) which will be available at the prices she got them for. (A steal!)
Lightweights come in stealth mode (Yes, black reflective tape!) for the cyclists out there who don't want to make their bikes stand out during daylight. There is no reason not to make your bike (and yourself) more reflective. willow might have a couple rolls of this tape if anyone at the workshop is interested in using some.
These workshops are FREE. willow has spent over $800 on fleece, reflective material, safety vests, and CycleLights in the past week, so donations are welcome!
