Cyklometa in Slovakia: A well-lit ride in the dark of winter (-15C!)

We got an email from Renata, of Prešov, Slovakia with information about a ride that she hopes to organize every year on January 6th.

They ride in the dark, and in the biting cold of winter.  It was -15C when they rode last year.

It’s called Cyklométa.  She started the event out of the desire to make sure people were safe and visible while riding.  During the inaugural event, riders found whatever lights they could and rode through town, decorated like Christmas trees.  They had a great time showing that riding a bike in the dark can be safe and fun together.

Now on their third year, they hope to continue their lovely tradition of bringing creating a light parade during the coldest part of winter in Slovakia.  We’re happy to be donating product for a prize this year.

You really should check out the video from their previous rides.  It’ll bring a smile to your face.

 

Give their Facebook page a visit for more information on this charming event!
