Event Details

As fall quickly approaches, daylight hours are dwindling. To increase safety, the Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District (MTD), the City of Champaign, the City of Urbana, and the University of Illinois have partnered to purchase bike light sets for the 10th annual ‘Light the Night’ Bike Light Distribution Campaign. There will be two locations on September 26, 2017 from 4 p.m.to 7 p.m.: Illinois and Lincoln (Hallene Gateway) and Wright and Springfield (Bardeen Quad). Please join us!

Please note: Bicyclists operating bikes without lights will have lights installed at these locations. Bicycles will be equipped with a set of front and rear lights by teams of volunteers at each location. Lights will only be installed on bicycles without lights; lights will not be given to individuals.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Thank you for giving your time to make Light the Night a success year after year. Please sign up here: http://thebikeproject.wikispaces.com/light-the-night-2017. We’d like volunteers to go to one of the training sessions before the event:
