Christmas lights on the bike

I bought some inexpensive battery powered LED Christmas lights from Walgreens, secured them to the Raleigh One Way with electrical tape and the result is a new incentive to ride!

Right now, the batteries are strapped underneath my seat bag. If you run lights along your chainstay like I did, ensure the wires and lights won’t get caught in any moving parts. Many people strike the inside heel of their foot on the chainstay so watch for that also.

The Walgreens light strings are short and made for putting in wreaths. You can get a longer string of 30 lights from DealExtreme here for $6.82 (including shipping). I’ve ordered some and I might try stringing them in a wheel.

What have you put on your bike? Are there any singing reindeer, talking Santas, or manger scenes on your bike?
