What's New In New York State!


Brooklyn Bike Rave

, New York City | Entertainment

Bedazzle your bikes, put on your craziest outfit, blast some party tunes and be ready for sensory overload at the Brooklyn Bike Rave, a glowtastic night ride along the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. *REGISTRATION OPENING MARCH 1st* $35 early-bird through April 1st The Brooklyn Bike Rave departs Greenpoint at dusk and takes participants on a 7.5 mile ride along the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway through the Brooklyn Navy Yard, stops under the iconic Archway under the Manhattan Bridge in DUMBO for entertainment, music, refreshments and lighting design by Ionic Design Group, continues through Brooklyn Bridge Park and finishes in Red Hook. The group rides en masse and ride marshals will set a family-friendly pace (in other words, slow). This is not a race. Brooklyn Bike Rave is New York’s first ever event of its kind and allows you, the participant, to become an integrated part of the event by bringing your creativity while experiencing the energy of nocturnal Brooklyn at its best. The Bike Rave is a cultural phenomenon that is spreading around the world, altering how people think about the cities in which they live and we invite you to join us for the city’s first! THE MUSIC: We have curated a playlist for you to play on speakers (not headphones) along the ride. More details on how to download the playlist will be sent to registrants. Need sound for your bike? Many bike speakers are available on Amazon or get a basket and some computer speakers. There are some great solutions from $15, and some pretty impressive creations. Just remember to charge those batteries. BRIGHT LIGHTS: It is the collective light and creativity of the hundreds of participants that brings this event to life! Look the part! Think bright lights, reflective jackets, glow sticks, EL wire, fluro and anything else that flashes and blinks. LEAVE NO TRACE In keeping with our green goals, recycling stations will be located at the ride start, rest stop and the finish. Help keep the Greenway clean by disposing of your trash appropriately or holding on to it until the next waste station in order to keep the route free of debris. VOLUNTEERS Volunteer ride marshals, course marshals and event assistants are needed.
