PRIZES include:
a. Ortlieb Back-Roller Panniers (valued at $160-photo to come), points will be assigned to clues or tasks. Not all locations are necessary to visit in order to participate but the more locations visited or tasks completed, the better chance you have to win! Once verified, most points wins. In the case of a tie, a playing card will be chosen out of a deck with the highest card winning.

b. Revolution Bicycle Gift Certificate (valued at $100), raffle tickets will be sold at $1 a piece with proceeds going to Companion Animal Foundation over in Sunny Brae. You must participate in the ride and be present at the Dead Reckoning when the winning ticket is drawn to claim your prize.

At the end of the ride, the particpant with the highest five-card hand wins the prize. in the case of a tie, a sixth card will be given out and the five highest cards out of six wins. 

What you should know beforehand:
The Scavenger Hunt ride is no-cost to participate BUT purchasing raffle tickets for a great cause is certainly appreciated and to accumulate the most points possible, you will be asked to purchase small, very inexpensive items at certain locations (water bottle/patch kit at Revolution Bicycle, beer at Dead Reckoning, etc.). Again, despite not being necessary to participate, its suggested that you bring a little money to purchase raffle tickets at the very least. 

Higher point totals will be awarded to tasks that are further out from our starting point (the plaza). You may be asked to go as far as Mad River Hospital or down to the marsh, so please be prepared. Tasks/locations with assigned points will only be publicized when riders check-in at 5:30pm the day of the event.

Extra points will be awarded to participants that decorate their bicyle with LED lights for the miniature Bike Party Humboldt ride starting at 8:15pm on the plaza at the same starting point. Riders that participate in the Bike Party ride will receive the 5th playing card to make their hand.

Extra points will also be awarded to participants that have registered with the National Bike Challenge website and record their miles during the ride with a smart phone app called strava. Plase contact us for more details. https://nationalbikechallenge.org/

Most tasks will require that you take a photo of a clue and present that image to the organizers at the end of the ride at Dead Reckoning Tavern. Make sure you have a fully charged battery!

Participants can ride individually or as a group, it does not matter but group members with the same number of points will need a tie breaker!

Cheating in any shape or form automatically disqualifies you from winning any of the three prizes. No ifs, ands, or buts PERIOD! 

We may add additional notes to this section so please check back before the ride!
