On Saturday, August 27th, hundreds of cyclists will bedazzle their bikes, put on their craziest outfits and blast party tunes at New York’s first ever Bike Rave.
The event is organized by the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, a non-profit organization that works to develop, establish and maintain the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway; a 14-mile path for pedestrians and cyclists that runs from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge. The Bike Rave will light up a 7-mile portion of the greenway starting in Greenpoint, touring through Williamsburg, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Dumbo and Brooklyn Bridge Park. Ride marshals will accompany the cyclists setting a friendly pace and ensuring cycle safety. The ride will end by looping back under the iconic Archway of the Manhattan Bridge for entertainment, music and refreshments
The Bike Rave will be a one of a kind event that allows participants to become an integrated part of the bike ride by bringing their own creativity to the event. Bikers are encouraged to dress up their bike in lights and bring speakers to play music from a custom playlist en masse. The ride is aimed to raise awareness for the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative and encourage alternative forms of transportation in the city.
Kiwi Energy has been a dedicated sponsor and participant in previous BGI events and is very excited to be part of an event that takes its inspiration from bike raves in other countries like Canada and New Zealand where they are more commonly used to raise funds for charity.
Kiwi Energy understands that organizations like the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative are not only encouraging an eco-friendly lifestyle but they are working towards the development of green spaces, that are a valuable and vital component in the growth of New York. “The Brooklyn Bike Rave will be a cultural phenomenon and we encourage everyone to experience this unique one of a kind event,” said Richard Booth, President of Retail Operations, Kiwi Energy.
