Light City: Kinetic Procession & Bike Glow Rally

  • Maryland Science Center 601 Light Street Baltimore, MD, 21230 United States

Light up your bike! And join Light City's walking parade of city cyclists and pedal powered contraptions making their way around the harbor. Pittsburgh’s critically acclaimed Squonk Opera will create a pageant of double-decker human powered stages to create post-industrial performances with original music, design and stages. 

Following the parade, cyclists are invited to participate in a glowing-group ride to visit some of the Neighborhood Lights locations.

Free to participate, but RSVP here

 

6:30PM — LIGHT YOUR BIKE WORKSHOP

Show up early to decorate your bike with LED lights. You're encouraged to bring and share supplies for bike decorating, and a limited number of free battery powered LED string lights will distributed.

8:00PM — KINETIC PROCESSION PARADE

Then join Bikemore and other bike groups in the parade, walking your bike alongside wheeled contraptions and a variety of kinetic sculptures. The parade starts at Rash Field at 8pm, goes through the Harbor, and ends at the Aquarium.

9:15PM — BIKE RIDE TO NEIGHBORHOOD LIGHTS

We'll then go on an illuminated group bike ride from the Aquarium to the Little Italy and Waverly Neighborhood Lights, ending back at the Inner Harbor around 10:45pm. The route sticks mostly to city designated bike trails and will be supported by experienced volunteers and Race Pace Bicycles staff.

Baltimore Bike Share will also be lending free bikes at the Aquarium for the ride.
