Brooklyn “Bike Rave” – Saturday Night 5/14/2016

From 7 PM to 10 PM on Saturday May 14th, 2016 the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is hosting a fundraising “Bike Rave” described as “a glowtastic night ride along the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway” supporting the 14-Mile route that will connect neighborhood parks and open spaces from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. What a good cause?

Also during the ride, “a curated radio show by Newtown Radio will be streamed with a click of a button and played on portable speakers that you bring.” Cool or what?

The 8 mile route: “Starting in Greenpoint, the group will ride through Williamsburg, travel inside the Brooklyn Navy Yard, through DUMBO and Brooklyn Bridge Park and loop back to finish under the iconic Archway under the Manhattan Bridge in DUMBO”, where there will be “food, water and music and riders will compete for prizes for best decorated bicycles.” according to DNAinfo.

This international event, which can draw thousands, looks like it has great potential for a memorable night outdoors with fellow cyclists, based on videos from Vancouver, Canada,

Melbourne, Australia,

and Auckland, New Zealand.

Reminiscent of our own Bike Summer in 2003.

You can order tickets here, or if you are the volunteering type for free, here.
