Night Rides and Lights – Stevenage and North Herts CTC Policy

The issue of lights was discussed at the last meeting and this is our agreed policy on the matter.

All participants on our evening and night rides must have suitable front and rear lights, so that they can be seen and meet road traffic regulations.
When riding on one of our rides; the lights must be switched to continuous illumination (not flashing). Flashing lights can be dangerous when riding in a group. Flashing lights can trigger a fit in riders with light sensitive epilepsy (we have at least one rider with light sensitive epilepsy). Flashing lights can also temporarily ‘blind’ following riders leading to accidents. (The only exception is the official sweeper who may use a flashing rear light to aid the safety of the whole group.)

Bike marking - Edd

Shephall PCSOs will be attending Edd's Bikes at The Hyde Shops, Stevenage on Saturday 7th March to carry out a bike marking event. Bring your bikes along between 10am-12pm and get your bike UV marked, get information on immobilise and crime prevention advice.

This is a great opportunity for anyone who doesn't already have their bike UV marked to get it done so in the case of a theft, the police have more information and can return the bike to you if found somewhere.
