I think Planet Bike is kind of awesome. Making great bike gear isn't enough for these guys. Did you know that they also give 25% of profits to cycling advocacy work? So I decided to contact Planet Bike to see if they'd be interested in giving away other of these great lights to my lovely readers. Before I get into the contest details, I'll give you more info on the Superflash Turbo.
The key to being safe on the roads is being seen. When darkness falls before 5pm, you need a bright light that gets the attention of the drivers around you. Planet Bike Superflash Turbo lights are extremely bright & with an irregular flash pattern, including a one-watt power LED, they're visible for hundreds of metres. They'll make you more visible & thus safer, even in daylight.
The vertical design is compact, weatherproof & durable. I attached my bracket to my seatpost, but you can also attach it to your bicycle frame or rack. I often clip one light to my jacket or purse then the second on our child trailer.
Planet Bike advertises the light as running for up to 100 hours on two AAA batteries. I don't really keep track of the hours I've used these lights, but I don't think I've needed a new battery on my older model yet. Whether you use the steady or flashing mode, it's a fairly energy efficient light.
Now for the contest: Planet Bike is giving away one Superflash Turbo. You've got until 11:59pm Thursday December 6 to enter. You can get multiple entries for following me & Planet Bike on Twitter & Facebook, as well as tweeting about the giveaway (daily if you like). The more of those that you do, the higher chance you have of winning. :) Just make sure to do the action (tweet, comment, etc) AND tell Rafflecopter that you did it in the form below so your entry will be counted! If you have any questions at all or something isn't working for you, please email me (lisa.corriveau AT gmail.com) & I'll help sort it out. :)
