Kaleidospoke is a fun, family-friendly, night time GLOW bike ride along Columbia’s MKT Trail from Flat Branch Park to Twin Lakes Recreation Area and back (just under four miles each way, approximately eight miles round trip). The highlights of this event are the illuminated bridges on the trail (you won’t want to miss this) and the GLOW party at Twin Lakes! 

Kaleidospoke is $15 per person, ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED prior to Friday, August 17 at noon. Your registration fee includes the supported ride, something bright for your bike, glow accessories, wristband to access the party at Twin Lakes Recreation Area, and s’mores. 

Kaleidospoke is a relaxed ride and you are free to go at your own pace. We will have support on the trail during the ride. Once at Twin Lakes, riders will enjoy s’mores by the bonfire (included in your registration), live music and GLOW entertainment. Then it’s time to show off your GLOW and enjoy the illumination along the trail during the ride back to Flat Branch Park. You can leave for your return trip whenever you are ready, but please be back to Flat Branch Park by 10:30 p.m. Decorate your bike and yourself in GLOW, have fun with this and keep safety in mind! 

Walt’s Bike Shop will join us before the ride at Flat Branch Park for any last minute minor bike maintenance as well as offering support during the ride. 

Helmets and front and rear bicycle lights are required. Kids under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Twin Lakes Recreation Area will be closed to the public during this event and a wristband will be required to enter the park (this is included with your registration). Children on tag-a-longs and in trailers can enter with the adult pulling them without a wristband, but please note s’mores, lights and GLOW items are only given to those who have paid the registration fee. 

To register over the phone, please call the Parks and Recreation main office at 573-874-7460,  8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, or the ARC at 573-874-7700.  To register online please visit this page. 

There is a 500 participant cap on this event.
