Hi, my name is Juli. Welcome to Let’s Glow Riding! I wanted to take the opportunity to explain what a Glow Ride is along with some other things:
What is a Glow Ride?
Our Glow Ride is a group of bikers who ride at night on lit bikes. We play music, blow whistles, ring our bike bells and just have fun.
How Do I Join?
Just show up and ride. These are not sponsored rides. YOU RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK! Your being careful and responsible is up to you. We announce the ride, you can ride along, enjoy.
When and Where do you Glow Ride?
We ride every Saturday night at sundown (weather permitting). We post a location every Tuesday (I'm constantly checking the weather). Consistently, we ride Safety Harbor, Dunedin, St Pete, On Top Of The World, Island Estates (Clearwater Beach) and more.
NOTE: We are always looking for new places to ride. If you have any suggestions, please let one of us know.
Who Can Ride With Us?
Anyone who is interested can ride with us. Most people who ride with us use manual bikes. Some people ride e-bikes. Please make sure you have proper air in your tires and your brakes work properly.
Is this a Club or a Group?
Neither. There are no membership fees or group requirements to ride.
How Fast and How Far Do You Ride?
This is a casual ride. My GPS says my average speed is 8-10 mph. If you're a slow rider, it is easier if you keep toward the front of the group. We try to stay together so people can see all the lights in a row. We typically ride about 10 miles.
Do I Need Bike Lights?
Bike lights are REQUIRED by Florida Law. This is a night-time ride, so you must have at least a working front and rear light - all others are optional - and way more fun :) . Please remember, you ALWAYS need to be seen by vehicles and the riders surrounding you.
Where Do I Get My Bike Lit Like That?
I install the lights in the Clearwater FL area. You can contact me for more information at 727-351-2234 or GetYourBikeLit@gmail.com
What Else Do You Have?
I also have an Etsy page where I sell bike accessories such as back lights, front lights, LED shoelaces, LED whistles and more. https://www.etsy.com/shop/LetsGlowLED
What CAN'T I do on the ride?
There are not a lot of rules, but we do not allow smoking or drinking during the rides. We have no agenda, so don't create one. We are just riding for fun.
We have Glow Rides, we can get your bikes lit, we have an Etsy page, we promote bike safety. Lots going on. Hopefully the Q&A's will help bring clarity.
