Illuminated Bike Ride
February 3, 2017 at 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Break out the battery powered lights, decorate your bike and yourself, and join a ride to shake off those winter blues. Get outside with your bike again.
No tickets needed, show up ready to bicycle – Friday night, February 3rd. This free, all ages affiliated event put on by Clever Cycles will start gathering cyclists between 7:30pm – 8pm at Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) front plaza on SE Water Ave in front of OMSI’s east facing doors. The ride will get underway just after 8pm. The 3.5 mile route will head south to Tilikum Crossing looping over the Willamette, north to the Hawthorne bridge, back over the Willamette and south to OMSI’s front plaza.
Bring more than your bicycle headlights and taillights. Use your illuminated imagination – add glow sticks, LEDs, Electroluminescent (EL) wire, wheel lights, etc. Come decked out in lights during the darkest part of winter — and as always, remember to dress appropriately for the February weather! We’ll be riding rain or shine. Our fingers are crossed for no snow.
