LIC Bike Parade

SATURDAY JUNE 11, 2016  |  11 AM – 4 PM

Join us for the LIC Bike Parade, a visual spectacle of decorated bicycles, human-powered floats made from recycled materials, and hand-painted parade banners. To help prepare for the occasion, Recycle-A-Bicycle will offer free mobile bike repair and a Kids Bike Swap, Bike New York will provide a Learn to Ride for Kids class in nearby Rainey Park, Socrates artists will lead bike decorating workshops, and Free Style Arts Association will lead a collaborative large-scale sculpture project to create a human-powered parade float. The parade will leave the main gate of Socrates at 2pm, travel southbound along Vernon Boulevard, and will culminate at a celebration in Queensbridge Park, where we’ll celebrate the 100th birthday of Jane Jacobs, a tireless advocate for access, use, and enjoyment of public spaces.

2 PM : Parade along Vernon Blvd. (leaving from Broadway entrance gate)
