Cascade Bicycle Club organizes community biking events, so the social distancing protocols make so many of their regular activities impossible right now.
The organization already postponed their annual Bike Swap has been moved to June 14, the Bike Everywhere Breakfast has been moved to June 3, the Washington Bike, Walk, Roll Summit has been moved to September 20 and 21 in Spokane, and their very popular free group rides program has been suspended until the end of March. And all these new dates are obviously subject to change depending on the status of the pandemic at that time.
So Cascade is trying out something different Friday: A “Bike, Walk or Roll Solo Scavenger Hunt.” You are not allowed to participate in a group (families are OK). Instead, you are supposed to head out into your neighborhood any time between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and “find” a list of challenges and take a picture of them. Then post your photos to the event page on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtags #FridayRideDay #FridayScavengerHunt #CascadeBicycleClub.
And of course, maintain safe social distancing at all times.
More details from the event listing:
Here are the rules to participate:
* Per health department guidelines, absolutely no groups. Please do this with your family or by yourself. Please practice safe social distancing.
* Practice safe riding. Check out our website for tips as well as our instagram @CascadeBicycle for tips on riding with kids.
* The goal is to find, by taking a picture with your cell phone camera, as many of the items listed in your community.
* Post them to this event page or on instagram, tag @CascadeBicycle and include hashtags #FridayRideDay #FridayScavengerHunt #CascadeBicycleClub
* Prizes include fresh air, getting out in the community, walking around your neighborhood, riding your bike!
