Scenes from Bicycle Sundae

At the finish, eating ice cream in the sunshine

Big thanks to everyone who biked and ate ice cream with us for Bicycle Sundae! 46 people registered for the scavenger hunt bike ride, which toured some of the city’s many great ice cream, gelato and frozen yogurt shops.

Riders were given a list of clues and had to figure out which shop to go to and how to get there. Some shops had free ice cream for riders, which is basically the bike version of stopping at a fueling station. Mmmmm delicious fuel…

Big thanks to Bicycle Benefits, which helped organize and host the ride. Thanks to Verity Credit Union, which sponsored the event, and all the shops along the way for hosting riders: Full Tilt shops in Ballard, U District and Columbia City, Sirena Gelato, Old School Frozen Custard, Bluebird Ice Cream, Ben & Jerry’s, Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt and Six Strawberries. All the shops have everyday Bicycle Benefits deals. Here’s a map of all the Seattle businesses that offer deals.

Below are some of the riders’ photos posted via Facebook and Twitter. We’ll have to do this again some time! Stay tuned for more Seattle Bike Blog events coming up.

    Ok, time to interject the food critic comment here, but really the last thing any of us need to eat is ice cream. It’s not the fat, it’s not the calories, it’s not even the dairy, it’s the sugar. Assume that we are riding for our health, and that of the planet, it’s time to change the rewards from sugar to something else.

      Boo frickin hoo. Seriously. I’m sure someone could point out something way worse than sugar that you’re doing, and it would be just as pointless as your little opinion.

        Maybe Gary needs the experience the joy of a choco-taco.

      • Gary says:

        chaco-taco?…. I hear it calling… must resist the call of chocolate!….

        No seriously, I’m riding full time and I’m not losing weight… I’ve had to re-evaluate what is in the food I am chosing to replace those burned calories.

    • mimi says:

      the LAST thing? I can think of a lot worse. When people ride 25 miles in the hot sun, believe me, they burn the sugar.
      The rewards of that bike ride? Sheer fun.. get over yourself.

    • Lisa says:

      Good thing I’m not riding for my health.

  4. Chase says:

    We had a great time, thanks for putting it on Tom. The tandem my girlfriend and I rode may not have been the ideal choice but we made it in the end… the sugar helped.

  5. Amy says:

    I got real sunburned. but it was worth it!! yay for ice cream!!

  6. I had a great time on this ride. I was so impressed with my fellow riders. See you next year!
