Gallery Night Bicycle Tours

The folks organizing Providence’s Gallery Nights has announced another season of gallery tours by bicycle (facebook).

Gallery Night Providence offers another season of guided bicycle tours of art. Interest in the environmentally-friendly transportation choice and the chance to highlight the accessibility of art venues, make this viewing option a natural fit. Bicyclists can easily navigate downtown and beyond. Artists, designers, art historians, and community arts leaders are lined up for the season and hope to attract both commuting and weekend bikers. The two galleries that are furthest from each other are less than five miles apart.

Each Gallery Night, May through September, weather permitting, guided bike tours will leave Regency Plaza, Greene Street, at 5:30pm. Tours are expected to last two hours.
