Photos of the World’s Only Glow-in-the-Dark Bike Path


The Dutch-based Studio Roosegaarde just unveiled a stunning illuminated trail in Nuenen, Netherlands.Β 

It’s based on the famous Vincent Van Gogh painting The Starry Night. This kilometer-long section is part of a cycle route through the province of Noord Brabant, where the artist was born and raised.

The swirling surface patterns are coated with a special paint that gathers enough energy during the day to glow after dark. In addition, there are LEDs along the sides of certain curves that cast extra light, and this means that the path is still partially lit if the weather is too cloudy to adequately charge it.
