TryCycling Unites Shops

Posted by chdot on October 20, 2006 has helped TryCycling in Edinburgh with its campaign to get more people to use lights. TCIE asked bike shops in Edinburgh if they would offer a discount. Almost all agreed! (Full list) So – 10% off lights between the 21st and the 30th of October 2006.

If you haven’t been to a bike shop for a while you’ll be amazed at the choice. From lights that’ll get you seen on the streets (and fit in your pocket) to ones that’ll light your way on a high speed ride on a rocky trail.

If you buy battery lights get re-chargeable batteries – cheaper to run and better for the environment.

Evening News Transport Reporter, Alan Roden, has given the initiative good coverage today.

(THIS story was mentioned in by Tom Morton on his Radio Scotland programme (20.10.06).

Can batteries be ‘Green’?
