Bicycles lighting the night in Venice Beach – BBC News

Published

on



What happens when you apply thousands of LED lights to a bicycle? You fit right in with Venice, California locals. Venice Beach, which served as a US hippy hub of the 1960s, is now seeing dozens of locals cruising its boardwalk late at night with brightly glowing rides.
The bicycle enthusiasts say they fit right in with the hundreds of performers, artists and musicians that already call Venice Beach home. BBC Pop Up’s Matt Danzico is off the road this month and exploring his new home in Southern California.

    I love riding my bike at night. Sure, it might not be the coolest bike in the world, but I still think it's pretty alright with the wheel lighting it currently has (front wheel blue lights, rear wheel green). Plus a little under frame red light bar.
