Circuit Playground Bike Light – Blinky bikey fun!:

In this guide we will use our Circuit Playground to create a customizable bike light. We’ll look at how we define colors in code and use that to make some fun animations with the NeoPixels. We’ll provide some example animations you can customize. Or you can modify and adapt the examples to try and create your own.
In a world of blinking red bike lights, add some color and pizazz to stand out!

Required Parts
In addition to a Circuit Playground, you will need some form of battery power so you can ride around outside with your bike light. Choose an option that works for how you plan to mount things to your bike.
