Lights at Night


Robin asked: What do you need on bike to be legal? Do you need lights for night? And if only riding in day do you need light?


A proper seat is required and helmets are required for those under 16.

Lights are not required if the bicycle is operated only during day time.

s. 316.2065 Bicycle Regulations

(7) Every bicycle in use between sunset and sunrise shall be equipped with a lamp on the front exhibiting a white light visible from a distance of at least 500 feet to the front and a lamp and reflector on the rear each exhibiting a red light visible from a distance of 600 feet to the rear. A bicycle or its rider may be equipped with lights or reflectors in addition to those required by this section.
