When & Where
Bike A2 is a 501(c)3 organized to raise awareness about biking and biking safety. Lite Bike is our first official fundraiser, designed to bring awareness about night-riding. Operating under the Theory, "Safety in Numbers," we believe Lite Bike will help raise awareness with automobile drivers about night-riding and the importance of sharing the road by setting a very bright example!
