Last Saturday, the Rotary Club of Bedford distributed safety lights at the town tree lighting. This was done in partnership with MassBike. They provided around 60 bike lights to give to cyclists. Their mission is give out sets of bike lights to keep the riders safer and legal while biking at night. The Club supplemented that project with 210 lights of our own targeting not only cyclists but pedestrians (and dogs!). The health and safety of children is one of the Rotary's areas of focus. School-age children walking or biking to or from school during the early morning or evening hours may cause students to travel in reduced lighting, increasing the risk of being stuck by a vehicle. These lights could help prevent such issues. The giveaway was very popular and we distributed of ALL of our lights!
