Fall Back and Roll On- Bicyclists Prepare for Days of Less Light

Police Department teams up with Bicycle Coalition for bicycle light giveaway in anticipation of this weekend's Daylight Savings Time Change 


The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition and the San Diego Police Department are embracing darkness coming with this weekend's Daylight Savings time change and taking bicycle safety into their own hands. 

Before we fall back, the Bicycle Coalition is giving away free sets of front and rear bicycle lights to prepare bicyclists for the upcoming change in hours. Anyone riding by the Police Department Headquarters at this time will receive complimentary lights (while supplies last), important safety information about riding in the dark and other Bicycle Coalition goodies to trick out their bicycle.


California state law requires bicycles be equipped with very specific lights when riding in darkness, which is defined as a half hour after sunset or a half hour before sunrise. The Bicycle Coalition knows the safety of our citizens is top priority.

By joining forces with the Police Department together they can uphold cycling laws while also ensuring bicycle commuters are visible and safer on the road without sunlight.


In front of San Diego Police Department Headquarters: 1401 Broadway, San Diego, 92101


San Diego Police Department and San Diego County Bicycle Coalition are providing these lights for any and all bicycle commuters.


Public remarks from SDCBC and SDPD: Wednesday, October 30 at 5 PM.
Light giveaway: Wednesday, October 30 from 4-6 PM
Daylight Savings: Sunday, November 3 at 2 AM
