Bike Wheel Lights to Keep You Lit
Pop these sparklers on your bicycle to safely hit the road with flair.
Everybody knows that a helmet is crucial to safe cycling. But bright can’t-miss LED lights are important too. If you or your kids like to trek around at night or in high-traffic areas, installing flashy bulbs on your wheels will add an extra layer of security. Bonus: They look super cool!
Standard bike lights can be seen only from front to back, leaving you vulnerable from other angles. Adding a string of bright bike lights to your wheels, especially when they’re a vibrant shade, ensures that everybody sees you coming and going.
When purchasing bike lights, double check that they’re waterproof. The last thing you want is to be cycling in low-visibility conditions, like rain or fog, and have them konk out.
Installing wheel lights is easier than it looks: Simply wind the light wire around each spoke so that the bulbs sit between the spokes. If you’ve ever hung fairy lights at home, you’re already an expert! (But don’t worry—you’ll get an installation manual to make sure everything’s clear.)
