The world’s first solar-powered, glow in the dark bicycle path just opened in the Netherlands. The Van Gogh-Roosegaarde cycle path was designed by Daan Roosegaarde and constructed by Heijmans and is part of the Van Gogh cycle route in Brabant.
Thousands of blue & green glowing stones illuminate the path at nighttime with a gentle glow inspired by Van Gogh’s world-famous painting, Starry Night.
A nearby solar panel and LEDs along the side of certain curves in the path cast extra light, meaning the path will still be partially lit if the weather has been too cloudy for the panel to charge the surface to its full brightness.
