Santa came early at the BCC, bringing 2 sets of Light in Motion Stella LED 200 lights http://www..co.uk/productinfo.aspx?vertical=Cycling&catref=EH8560153 (thanks to Avon Valley Cyclery).
We're offering these lights to members and non members who would like to get involved in the ever popular club night rides, the intention is to provide club members with a way of trying out night rides before committing to buying expensive lights themselves, but also to provide a way into the night rides for non members (availability permitting) at a small cost.
All money raised from the hire of these lights will be put back into XC projects and equipment.
Here's how it'll work:
If you are a member, then you can borrow the lights up to two times for free, after that it will cost £5 per night ride (to discourage people from doing so every week, so that others can have a go), this can be arranged on the club forum.
Non members can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to borrow the lights, they will have to pay £5 per night ride and will only be allowed to borrow them twice.
The small print: Non members will be expected to show ID and give their name, address and phone number at the start of the ride. Lights can only be borrowed for use on club night rides and must always be given back to Chris Sheppard and / or Mark Amor at the end of the ride. Members will always be given priority over non members, and first timers given priority over those who've used them before.
Also, BCC club members can save 15% on the RRP of a set of any of the Light and Motion lights from AVC by showing their valid membership card.
