Bike Lights for Riding At Night

My son, who just turned 10, is now wanting a bit of independence and to be able to do things that his younger siblings can not. One of those things includes staying up a bit later and going on evening bike rides with his Dad.

During those late night rides, I worry about safety even when they stay well-away from any sort of traffic. I like him visible and one of the greatest, most fun ways that I’ve found to help out with that are these super bright bike lights for his rims.

The company sends out a few different colours in every package, which include blue, green or multi coloured lights. My oldest prefers green but it worked out well because my youngest, as well as my husband, received rim lights too. We simply attached them to the valves on their tires, with an easy two-minute install. They work via motion activation, when the wheel turns. For the pricing, you can’t really go wrong when they last for 50 000 hours, are waterproof and usable in any terrain.

Taking them out for a spin on their very first night, we did end up discovering that a couple of the lights appeared to be duds. If you order them and receive any like that, don’t worry- just stick an extra battery in them and they’ll work without issues! My husband figured out that some work better with 4 batteries instead of the 3, which come with the bike lights.

I purposely dressed my son in darker clothing for this review, wanting to capture the rim lights without any distraction; As you can see though, he’s still very visible in the dark. Coupled with all of our usual safety measures, I’m confident knowing that Dad will easily be able to see him on the trail at night- and so will others, which is definitely important.

    My husband bikes 1 hour each way to work, every day. He usually waits for the commuter traffic to die down before he heads out – and always has tons of bright lights on his bike. I’m glad you’ve put them on your kids bikes too. It definitely brings attention to them when they’re out after dark.

    These are great! Would’ve loved to have lights on my bike as a kid. I don’t have a bike now, but I definitely want to add some lights when I get one.
