The innovative LightBike Trail public art installation was created for the community by our Downtown Billings team. The project is a mapped and walkable trail of eleven, neon-lit bicycle art installations that will run through the alleys of downtown Billings. The LightBike Trail invites residents and visitors to explore downtown and support local businesses through a positive and safe pedestrian experience. The intention of this project is multi-fold, the project creates a trail of light bike art installations that provide a source of light, clean up alleyways, deter crime, and create a landscape for future alley-scape projects.
