Guess what bikeling friends...? Its time for the Vivid Festival again in Sydney which means we are organising our Vivid Bike Light Spectacular! For those of you new to our Vivid ride - check out pics from our last Vivid event here: http://featherbrigade.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/vivid-night-of-lights.html
This year we are doing things a little differently. For starters it will be a longer bike ride, starting from Sydney Uni. We will wind along the waterfront of Glebe and Prymont before bedazzling Darling Harbour and then whizzing around Walsh Bay before heading up to the Rocks and then finding a suitable stopping point near the MCA. There we will have a vote for "Best Decorated Bike" and "Best Decorated Person" with prizes (oooh). After that the fun you have is up to you - check out the lights of Vivid on the festival walk (and don't forget your camera). We will have a follow up competition on our blog for the "Most Creative Photo" from the night, so happy snapping!
Ideas for lights - think battery-powered fairy lights, glow sticks, light sticks, twirlywhirls, wheel lights, light up toys, solar powered lights. Let your imagination take over! Our favourite was the glow sticks taped to wheel spokes - very effective. We found our lights at Kmart, $2 dollar shops and Ebay.
Ideas for high vis - wear your high vis in different ways, snap bands, arm bands, Tron stripes... the possiblities are endless!! We ask that you come ready to ride on the night so we can all admire each other and then GET BIKELING!
Feel free to contact us via facebook or through the blog if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you there, no matter what 'type' of bikelist you are and - SPREAD THE WORD!
