Join us for an evening of 80's fun while mobilizing individuals and communities in rural Africa through the #PowerofBicycles! The Scavenger Hunt Benefits World Bicycle Relief. There will be 5 stops around downtown that are reminiscent of Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Teams of 2 will participate by completing activities at the 5 stops (no speed contest, this will be focused on bike safety!). Teams encouraged to dress in their best 80's style and compete for "best dressed". The event will end at a bar downtown for Chainlink Bar Night with a raffle for participants that finished with all five checkpoints completed. Find your favorite 80's outfit and start practicing your "Twist & Shout" and "Danke Schoen"!
