For a second year the Western Nebraska Bicycling Club will be hosting the Candy Corn Grab Bicycle Scavenger Hunt on October 29th.
Organizer Matt Hutt told KNEB News the purpose of the casual and fun bicycle ride is to burn off a few calories at Halloween time while having a fun time.
Hutt says ride consists of kid and adult riders in teams of two to four members that will start their ride in the parking lot of the Monument Grill, on Clubhouse Drive at Monument Shadows Golf Course in Gering at 11 a.m.
Team members will receive instructions for locations to “scavenge,” and they must use a digital or phone camera to photograph themselves as a group at each location. All team members must return to Monument Grill by 1 p.m. Participants may purchase lunch on their own while the scavenger hunt points are tallied.
Points are awarded for the number of locations photographed, and bonus points are awarded for rare locations, submitting photos via text message, funny pictures, and for teams wearing costumes. Team members who fail to operate their bicycles safely (such as by failing to wear a helmet or by breaking traffic rules) will disqualify their team. The top-scoring teams will receive prizes from Sonny’s Bike Shop.
There is no fee to participate. Hutt says the ride will take place rain or shine, but that ice or snow on the roads will cancel the event.
