Be Bright on your bike

Be Bright is all about improving cyclists' safety during low-light and poor visibility conditions.

Bike Wise and the NZ Police promote the use of front and rear lights and high-visibility clothing in order to reduce risks to cyclists during low-light periods at dawn and dusk and in poor weather. 

This year Be Bright coincides with the start of Daylight Saving on 3 April.
