Scavenger Hunt Ride
Welcome to Ride Yourself Fit's 6th Annual Scavenger Hunt Ride. This ride has all new clues to solve and locations to find. Teams will be given a list of clues that identify a number of facilities and locations in the City of Redlands. Teams must solve the clues to identify the sites, then ride to these sites and photograph the team members there. We will meet at the IYBI office at 7:30 am for announcements and a presentation of the rules and clue sheets. The ride will start promptly at 8:00 am.
NOTE: It will be very helpful to have at least one team member who lives in and/or is familiar with general known facilities and landmarks in the City of Redlands.
Two routes are being offered.
The first route has seven clues and should be completed within 6 to 12 miles of riding with no climbing. This route is designed for families and those riders who prefer the usual 10 miles routes.
The second route has fifteen clues and should be completed with 20 to 30 miles with some climbing. This route is designed for riders who prefer the usual 20 and 30 mile routes.
The general rules for the Scavenger Hunt Ride are as follows:
Establish a group of at least four and no more than eight riders for each team. If you don't have a team, we'll help match you up with other RYF members or help you join a team if possible.
The team must bring a digital camera or Iphone, and a pen or a pencil on the ride.
Just prior to the start of the ride, teams will be given a list of clues that describe a facility or landmark. All locations will be within the Redlands city limits.
Teams will be given three hours on the longer route, and two hours on the shorter route to complete the scavenger hunt ride.
Teams must write the name of the landmark or facility on the clue sheet provided.
Each team must find the proper location and take a photo of the team members with the landmark or facility visible and identifiable in the background. Signs showing the name of the landmark or facility are acceptable.
Teams shall return to the identified finish location within the prescribed time.
The team with the greatest number of correct locations with photos of the team will be the winner.
must estimate the mileage they will ride in search of the clues and
write this mileage on their clue sheet before leaving the start. One team member must keep track of the mileage ridden by setting their odometers to 0 at the start of the ride, and then record their mileage on the clue sheet at the finish of the ride. If two or more teams tie with the most correct number of locations, the team with the closest guess to the mileage that they actually rode to complete the hunt will be the winner.
All teams members must practice “The Safe Ride” program while on their bikes.
