Without lights, a person on a bicycle is nearly invisible. As the days get shorter, more people will be riding after sunset. Let's make sure no one gets left in the dark.
Help support our I Light HFX campaign!
The purpose of the I Light HFX campaign is to raise awareness and create a sense of community visibility about cycling after dark. The campaign includes a community ride with well-lit bikes, the distribution of lights in our community, and raising funds for the HCC.
Wear your brightest colours. Light up your bicycle. Ride with us.
Join us on a bright and shiny bike tour of the Halifax peninsula. Brighten up your bike with lights, glowsticks, and anything shiny, and help us raise funds and promote safe cycling after dark! The ride will be an easy 10km ride, and the funds raised will help us giveaway rechargeable lights to cyclists in need. There will be prizes for the brightest bikes!
We’ll meet in the back parking lot at Cyclemith (2553 Agricola St) starting at 6:15pm on November 23. There will be registration, warm drinks, and last-minute gear-shopping and safety checks. The ride will begin at 7:00pm and will be escorted by Halifax Regional Police. Thanks to Cyclesmith for their support in this event!
There will be a celebratory event following the bike ride, in the community room at the Bridge, 5553 Bloomfield Street.
Tickets are $20 for members, $30 for non-members. Can’t make the event? Please consider donating to support the campaign.
