Riding your bike in the dark can be very dangerous – that’s why everyone should have lights on the front and back of their bike if they’re riding at dusk or after dark. The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and I partnered to host one of their “Operation Firefly” events in Van Nuys this month.
We set up our event along Van Nuys Blvd., and we distributed free bicycle lights to kids and adults who passed by on bikes without them. It is important that kids enjoying our community on their bike are able to do so safely. Hopefully, these bicycle lights will help keep a few more residents safe as they bike our neighborhood streets.
