Be Bright, Blinky Light - Oct. 26 (rescheduled from Oct. 19)

The Ashmont Cycles Wednesday night ride group has decided to call it a night, so to speak, for the season, and will be giving out blinky lights to Dorchester riders on Wednesday, October 26. Please join Dot Bikers at Ashmont Cycles at 6:00 p.m to 8:00 p.m. if you want to participate (or need a light).

After meeting, the bikers will choose a couple of prominent locations and spend some time handing out lights, then meet up for some socializing. This was a blast last year - riders met were pleased to have the lights.

Show up brightly lit yourself and you may take home a prize! Your RSVP (to is always appreciated, as are suggested locations to give out lights. Ashmont Cycles is located at 551A Talbot Ave., Dorchester, MA.
