Community Cycles Board passes Reflector Policy


At the CC October Board meeting, the board passed the following policy:

In the interests of the safety of our customers, Community Cycles promotes the use of reflectors on bicycles.

All bicycles with 24-inch, or larger, wheels are sold with front, rear and wheel reflectors. Exceptions include specialty bicycles clearly labeled “for off-road use only.” Pedal reflectors are installed on all bicycles sold with flat pedals. Earn-A-Bike program participants are expected to install reflectors on their bicycles. Free reflectors and installation assistance are available to all members. Reflectors will not be installed on bikes sold “as-is,” typically in a non-functional state.
