Your Christmas tree has nothing on these lights…

win bicycle spoke lights

We bought a few sets of these coloured LED bicycle spoke lights via an advertisement on Twitter and very much on a seasonally-inspired whim (so we can’t vouch for their quality), but if what they promise is true, your bicycle will look every inch the mobile Christmas tree.

According to the packaging, installation is as easy as clipping them to your spokes…and switching them on. Once you reach a speed of 25km/h (about 15mph) 32 individual LED lights rotate fast enough to allow the human eye to work its magic and interpret them as colourful and kaleidoscopic patterns.  We have two front and rear sets to giveaway – fit them to your own bike for a flamboyant commute in dreary January or put them under the tree for a loved one.

An insurance company like no other

Not only are we Britain’s most ethical insurance company, we campaign for sustainable transport. Sometimes that means protesting until a school gets the zebra crossing they’ve been refused, or running 60 roadshows this year to encourage people out of their cars, or fixing bicycles for free. Supporting this work is easy – you simply have to take out cycle insurance with us, cover that just happens to be excellent.

Unlike other insurers we never devalue your bike. And if you ride a carbon bike, rest assured we will never have a cracked frame repaired – we will always replace your bike with a new one. How many other insurers can say that? Find out more

..and it’s not just cycle insurance that we offer. We provide  home insurancecycle insurancetravel insurance and breakdown cover  – all while putting concern for the environment at the heart of all we do.
