The Bike Month Planning group is organizing the 14th annual Light the Night, a bike light giveaway event on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 from 4-7 pm at three locations:
- Alma Mater Plaza,
- Hallene Gateway (intersection of Illinois and Lincoln), and
- Campus Bike Center (51. E. Gregory Dr., Champaign)
If you would like to volunteer for this event, please fill out the Volunteer Sign-Up Form. Share it with your friends and bring them with you! Volunteers can select one of the three shifts:
- First half shift - 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm - will include help with the set up
- Second half shift - 5:15 pm to 7:15 pm - will include help with the tear down
- Full shift - 3:30 pm to 7:15 pm
Over the past several years, we have installed over 800-1,000 bike light sets every year, and even in 2020, we installed nearly 450 bike light sets on bikes in the Urbana-Champaign area.
In the event of heavy rain, Light the Night will be postponed to Tuesday, September 21, 2021 from 4-7 pm. Volunteers will be notified by email.
