17 people then set out for a scavenger hunt using only bike share bikes and public transit. It may have been Seattle’s first alleycat race where people were not allowed to use their own bikes.
Riders had to post photos from each stop to get credit, and below are some of my favorite photos from the event.

Atom pretty much cheated by going off track to the Donut Cat stand, easily locking up the prize for cutest photo.

One of the challenges was to get a photo of a stranger ringing your bike bell. Because scavenger hunts are supposed to include at least some awkward interactions with strangers, right?

And, of course, no alleycat would be complete without defacing property with Seattle Bike Blog promotional materials!

Thanks again to everyone who joined the ride! And thanks to Pike Brewing for being awesome and reserving us space for the after party!
