BikeGlow–A Review and a Giveaway!

I don’t know about you, but where we all Fall is definitely here.  The days are cooling off, and it gets dark earlier.  For that reason, it’s so important to make sure you have lights on your bike when you ride it!  One of the best things you can do to stay safe while biking is make sure that you’re as visible as possible.  Bike Glow set out to do just that, and they did an amazing job.

BikeGlow is a ten foot waterproof tube that is easy to fasten to your bike in any way that you want.  I set mine up like the picture on their web page, and the whole process took about ten minutes.  The hardest part was putting in the batteries!  Once installed, you can pick three different settings – steady, slow flash, and fast flash.  The fast flash would be great if you’re somewhere with a lot of traffic, it’s impossible to miss! 

Children will love using this light because there are so many customization possibilities.  You just have to make sure you keep it away from moving parts! There are even eight color choices – Blue, Red, Pink, Purple, Aqua, White, Green, and Yellow  Reflective tape only works when a light shines on them, but these make you visible no matter what.  A great way for a family to keep up with each other when riding at night. 

I know I feel much safer with this light on my bike, and I think it’s a product everyone who owns a bicycle should have!

BUY IT:  You can buy BikeGlow on their website, or from REI stores

WIN IT:  One lucky US reader will win their very own BikeGlow. 

CONTEST ENDS October 14th at MIDNIGHT EST

  40. P Anderson says:

    We all know that kids don’t always pay attention while riding their bike…especially my sometimes absent minded teenage boy who rides his bike for transportation after dark…this is a great items that would definitely bring attention for safety purposes and looks cool at the same time. (This is one of those “Why didn’t I think of that moments”

    Since we have no car, my teen rides his bike all over town. With the days getting shorter, he often must ride at dusk/night. I’d feel much better about him being out and about with these lights on his bike!
