Haven't seen this posted anywhere. WABA is having another free light giveaway. Time/location here:
Last time they were these lights:
Unfortunately,they use lithium coin cells. Google search will find the cheapest prices if you buy in bulk.
no location out in the burbs... :-(

I would love some free lights. Right now I am a daylight only rider, except in the safety of my own neighborhood in the well lit hilly empty parking lots of closed businesses.

im trying to open their website and it seems down. Dcist had them listed though. There being given out at the suntrust plaza on columbia rd and 18th. Seems that if you already have a light, you wont get any love, so hide your lights if you want any freebies!
