To entice cycle commuters to join British Cycling, the first 100 cyclists to sign up will also receive a free See.Sense ACE intelligent bike light. The light will use technology to monitor your ride, with information on collisions, near-miss events, speed and road surface quality all being captured as well.
This information can then be shared with British Cycling, who will campaign for safer and better cycling infrastructure based on hard data.

British Cycling is home to all riders, which is demonstrated by their desire to open doors to commuters within their cycling community.
