Bike Lights - buy one, an Albany school kid gets one free!

          

We have partnered with Safe Routes to Schools of Alameda County , the City of Albany and DuraVisionPro to make these versatile bike lights available to school kids and to you! For each Safety Light that you buy, an Albany student gets one free! For just $8 each, or $15 for two (that's 50% off MSRP,) you get a bright red rear light with three blinking modes, a clip and a quick-off bike mount.
To purchase or for more information, contact Amy Smolens at calamari@alumni.duke.edu.

It was rather heartening to have our above claims of "50% off MSRP" confirmed the other day when I ran across the following advertisement for the exact same product in an online catalog
(sans AS&R/SR2S logo, of course).  Here is a link, listing just ONE light at $16.95 each (plus tax/shipping), advertising it as a "Bright Night Bike Light", but not even including a bike mount:  http://www.sahalie.com/jump.jsp?itemID=14128&itemType=PRODUCT&path=1%2C2%2C7%2C1582&iProductID=14128 (Sahalie ad posted for comparative purposes on 12/29/09 by Sherie Reineman, AS&R).  Our AS&R version is better than twice the value and supports a good, grass-roots advocacy cause promoting bike-ped safety for children in our local community.  We appreciate your support of this great SR2S program by purchasing our lights through AS&R.

Help kids and adults ride more safely and light up the Albany night!

**October 7, 2009 was International Bike & Walk to School Day. AS&R members installed 150 free lights on the bikes of kids who rode to school - a huge success! Help us give more kids lights by buying some for yourself or as gifts!  (a copy of an article we wrote appears in the AS&R Documents page and on our International Bike & Walk to School Day page: WT-November.pdf)
The button batteries should last as many as 70 hours. Replace with two #2032 batteries, found at drugstores and hardware stores.
