Bicycle Ride And Seek – Photo Scavenger Hunt 2014 – Richardson, TX

leave a comment »

Since last year’s Scavenger Hunt was such a great success, I decided to do it again this year.

Introducing Richardson’s 2nd Annual Ride And Seek, Photo Scavenger Hunt. From mid-October to mid-November, I’m inviting and motivating folks to get out and ride their bikes, explore their neighborhoods and win prizes!

This year’s theme will be “The Bike Racks of Richardson”.

My local advocacy group, Bike Friendly Richardson, is working with the City of Richardson to gather data on the current inventory of available bicycle parking throughout the city. I thought this would be a fun way to involve the bike community and collect valuable information that will help make my city more bike friendly.

If you happen to be in north Texas this month, I encourage you to participate. Click here for details.
