This Solar-Powered Glowing Bike Path Would Make Cycling Far More Enjoyable

glowing bike path

With so much talk about the need for bike lanes in cities around the world, little discussion has been focused on making them better. A Dutch designer took upon himself to create a safer and quite frankly a beautiful glowing bike path. This kilometer-long bike path was developed using both glow-in-the-dark technology and solar-powered LEDs to help bicyclists stay on track when they ride at night.

Dutch artist and designer Daan Roosegaarde created the innovative glowing bike path to look like Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night painting. The Glowing Bike Path is located in Brabant, the Dutch county where Van Gogh was born and raised.

Daan Roosegaarde’s company Studio Roosegaarde is currently in talk with the City of Toronto to bring its Van Gogh-inspired glowing bicycle path to their city in time for the 2015 Pan Am Games.

A Guys Dressed Up As A Chicken Is Giving Out Free Taxi Rides in Vancouver

free taxi vancouver

Back in the summer of 2014, the Twitter account @HiddenCash started to tweet the secret location of envelopes with cash inside.

It first started in San Francisco but copycat account @HiddenCashYVR emerged in Vancouver soon after and continues to this day to leave hidden money around the city.

Not long after that, a free marijuana Twitter account popped up and then a free taxi service which abruptly stopped after a day.

That free taxi service is back with a purpose. They’ve been driving people around the city in protest to the B.C. government’s opposition to Uber and the need of taxi reform in the city.

If you want a ride and don’t mind the driver wears a chicken costume, tweet @YesFreeTaxi.

Join him and the fight to bring Uber to Vancouver, BC, sign the petition here.

If You Haven’t Fallen In Love With Canada Yet, Watch This Video And Say Goodbye to Your Heart

Canada should be renamed Adventureland due to all of the fun and exciting things you can do here, something we often forget. City life can overshadow a life-changing experience only a few miles away in the great outdoors.

If You’re Racist in Canada You Will Literally Get Punched In The Face

A Canadian filmmaker took to the streets of Hamilton, ON to conduct a social experiment following the shootings in Ottawa to see if perceptions changed after the horrific event.

Despite new fears imposed by media of rising terrorism in Canada, citizens of our great country remain unfazed and firm in their beliefs that racism of any sort has no place in Canada. So true to their values, Canadians will challenge you and even give you a cheap shot right in the nose as this filmmaker found out.

Despite having a bloody nose, the social experiment was an astounding success proving how we will always stand on guard for thee.
