If you want to organize your own paint-up and you’re willing to share the experience with new friends, please post to SolCycles@yahoogroups.com. Rendezvous at the start of the parade route (the corner of 3rd Ave NW and NW 36th St) at 12:30pm, painted and ready to kick off the parade!

The Painted Cyclists have long been a fixture of the Fremont Solstice Parade experience. The parade is produced by the Fremont Arts Council; it’s a fantastic and whimsical celebration of the return of the sun, complete with larger than life puppets, floats, and street performers.
The Painted Cyclists engage and entertain the crowd with our boldness, bareness and enthusiasm. Join us as we welcome summer to Seattle with an outpouring of artistic expression, fossil-fuel-free travel, and fun.
