A Light In The Darkness: World’s First Glow-In-The-Dark Bike Path

Summer nights are behind us now, and we’ve entered a time of year known as “the dark season.” Cultures all over the world have traditions and holidays involving lights and candles, all with the intention of breaking up the darkness with a little sparkle.

This quest for beauty, along with the safety concerns that arise when cyclists are commuting in nearly pitch-black conditions, inspired artist Daan Roosegaarde and a Dutch construction company to collaborate on the first ever glow-in-the-dark bike path. They put their heads together to find a way to create a ride home that’s both safer and more beautiful. The trail gets its glimmer from a combination of phosphorescent paint and solar-charged LEDs. As an added bonus to its safety features, it’s absolutely dreamy. Riding on it must feel like you’re biking through outer space! The group is currently working on glowing highways to light the night for cars as well. We look forward to a day when this becomes the norm for roads and paths all over the world.
