Solar-Powered Glowing Bicycle Path In Netherlands Inspired By Van Gogh’s Starry Night

Dutch artist and designer Daan Roosegaarde has created a beautiful and innovative glowing bike path that, when illuminated at night by glowing pebbles and LEDs, looks like Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night painting.

The kilometer-long bike path, which was created using both glow-in-the-dark technology and solar-powered LEDs, is located in Brabant, the Dutch county where Van Gogh was born and raised. The swirling, glowing forms on the path’s surface will help bicyclists stay on track when they ride at night.

We’ve seen similar glowing paths before in the U.K. We can only hope that more artists and innovators join forces to create such beautiful and environmentally friendly paths!
