Celebrate Florida Bike Month by exploring your own neighborhood in a self-guided scavenger hunt!
Help us celebrate Florida Bicycle Month this March by joining us for a free biking scavenger hunt! Forward Pinellas is pleased to announce our 2nd self-guided “Bike Your Own City” scavenger hunt for residents throughout Pinellas County. This event will take place throughout March in Pinellas County and includes transportation treasures and other items that can be found in your own neighborhoods. You only need to find 15 of the 20 items to get a chance to win free t-shirts and bike lights.
“Bicycling plays such an important role in the lives of so many Pinellas County residents and visitors. The virtual Bike Your Own City scavenger hunt is a great way for everyone to celebrate Florida Bike Month and learn how important it is to keep each other safe on our roads and trails,” says Forward Pinellas Chair and St. Petersburg Councilmember Darden Rice. “I am especially excited about the partnership with our local bike shops and the excellent community art project to increase safety awareness and bike advocacy.”
Once you register, you’ll receive an Email from Eventbrite with the scavenger hunt locations and step-by-step instructions for how to participate and show us your “selfie.” You’ll also have the opportunity to support local businesses, get involved with our social media campaign, and even win a T-shirt, bike lights, gift cards and more! Keep an eye out for our Tuesday Trivia on social media and you could win a gift certificate to a local bike shop!
Beginning March 1st, registered participants will receive their scavenger hunt list through the Eventbrite Order Confirmation email, participants who registered prior to March 1st will receive their scavenger hunt list via email from Forward Pinellas.
The Safety Harbor Art and Music Center (SHAMC) will be creating free, custom “Bike Your City” yard signs that you can pick up at several local bike shops. Register today for more information on how to get your sign and show your support for bike advocacy.
