LCRK Does VIVID - Wed 30 May

With the VIVID festival on again in Sydney from 25 May to 16 June - Lane Cove always joins in the fun and puts on their own light and sound show on the Lane Cove River. This is run as part of the normal Wednesday Time Trial - and we encourage all paddlers to come along with a bit of bling.

As you can see from the pictures - some put a fair bit of time, energy and soldering irons into it including accompanying soundtracks (who can forget the Dancing Queens in the K4!). A quick trip to the $2 shop is also more than sufficient (or just 'borrow' the lights from your bicycle). Prizes are awarded based on a criteria yet to be decided. One hint - do not light up your front deck - you'll have no idea where you're paddling.
