Holiday Lights for Your Bike!

Looking for a cheap way to decorate your bike for the holidays - and improve your visibility in the dark of winter?

LED lights powered by 2 AA batteries!

They make 'em in stars, snowflakes, icicles, and "regular" holiday lights. The strands have a 3 position switch - off, on, and blinky.

$4 each at the big chain stores. Maybe the small stores, too. (If you find locally owned stores with them, please drop a comment.)

Secure the battery packs and the strands with black electricians tape or the ever-handy duct tape.

Or make a tree or stand to strap on to your handlebars or pannier rack.

There are also other lighting systems like hokey spokes and FlexPro, some of them much higher quality.

If you have other ideas or sources drop them in the comments!

And don't forget about the Holiday Bike Parade on December 11th!

(h/t - thanks K!)
