I am super excited to announce an all-new Seattle Bike Blog event, Bicycle Sundae: an alleycat-style ice cream scavenger hunt by bike.
Organized in conjunction with Bicycle Benefits, you’ll be sent out into the city on a journey to tour as many of Seattle’s awesome ice cream, gelato and frozen custard shops as you can before time is up. Bike, eat ice cream, bike, eat ice cream, repeat…
Join us June 1. The ride starts at 12:30 p.m. at Full Tilt in Ballard and ends around 4 in Seward Park for the city’s car-free Lake Washington Boulevard bike party: Bicycle Sunday.
The event costs $10 if you already have a Bicycle Benefits sticker ($15 if you don’t, but then you’ll get one). You can register at the start (get there by noon) or pre-register online at the event page.
You can also RSVP via facebook and invite your friends.
When: June 1. Meet at noon, leave a 12:30.
Start: Full Tilt Ice Cream in Ballard
End: Seward Park (for Bicycle Sunday!)
Cost: $15 ($10 if you already have a Bicycle Benefits sticker) Kids under 6 ride free.
You can pre-register for the ride below or register in-person at the start. You can ride in groups or solo. We’ll have prizes and ice cream at the finish. Costumes are encouraged.
As a scavenger hunt, you will be given a list of Seattle ice cream shops to visit and some other challenges to complete. Your goal is to visit as many stops and complete as many challenges as you can during the time given. There is no set route or closed course. It will be up to you how you bike from place-to-place.
Note that the ride does not end where it starts. The ride should end around 4 p.m.
