A unique social activity during “Culture Night”: a bicycle parade for Freedom in Ukraine

This year, the motto of Culture Nights is „Light always wins”. It is a reminder that the darkness of today’s events can only be dispelled by the light of culture and goodness. It is in the context of the military conflicts that this year’s Culture Night will feature a unique social action – the „Bicycle Parade for Freedom in Ukraine x BANGERLAND”. 

During the event there will be a competition for the most interesting bicycle, so on 17 June from 18:00 to 21:00 the organisers of the event will invite everyone to the courtyard of the Užupis Art Incubator, where there will be a bicycle decorating workshop with Velo Magia. And as the sun goes down (on 17 June at 22:00 from the Cathedral bell tower) – to the 16 km bicycle parade.

This event is a bicycle ride through the streets of Vilnius with the music of BANGERLAND DJ to support Ukrainian people during the Russian invasion.

Kristijonas Klimaitis, the founder of BANGERLAND, comments that all participants of the event are invited to take Ukrainian and Lithuanian flags. „Last year, the bicycle ride with the police escort was very well supported. Therefore, I think that this year too, active leisure lovers will have a big, meaningful and very beautiful event”, says K. Klimaitis.

The duration of the parade is approximately 2 hours at a speed of 12 km/h. The speed is low, so all ages are welcome: teenagers (14 years and older, with parental accompaniment or written consent), adults and the elderly. 

The event is completely free of charge (both participation in the bicycle decoration workshop and the bike parade). If you do not have a bike, you can rent one from the event partners. For more news about this event, follow us on Facebook: https://fb.me/e/6JBkAaOYn
