Police request bikers to use front light and a rear light when riding at night during Vesak festivals.

CYCLING AT NIGHT: HOW TO LIGHT UP YOUR BIKE

ALWAYS have two lightweight “blinky” lights with you while you are riding.

A red flashing light in the rear and a white light in the front are ideal, regardless if you are riding in the day or night.


For serious night riding on the road, be prepared with a more serious rear light. The rear light is one of the most important lights you can have since you cannot avoid cars coming up behind you.

Blinking lights will draw more attention to you than solid red or white lights.
Headlights are also important to be seen by oncoming vehicle traffic and to light your way at night. When it is really dark, not being able to see curbs or bumps in the road can be almost as dangerous as not being seen by cars!
