PRESS RELEASE: Washington State's Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance
New for 2020, Washington State's Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, a 501c3 trail building and mountain bike advocacy organization, is excited to host the Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day Virtual Challenge
, facilitated by Compass Outdoor Adventures on Saturday, October 3rd.
Participants can join in on the day’s all-ages festivities from any trail, anywhere in the world. Online scavenger hunts, creative challenges, and fun ideas for getting out and riding will make for an inspiring day in a family-friendly and inclusive environment.
The free event officially starts at 10am PST, but pre-ride missions will be released at 6am PST for those who want a head start!
Using the Goosechase
online scavenger hunt app as a platform, families (or COVID pods) will be guided through a series of 50 mountain bike related challenges– everything from riding your bike, to drawing your favorite trail, to answering quiz questions. For every challenge completed, you’ll earn points in a friendly competition. Don’t feel like competing? No problem. Sit back and use the challenge prompts presented by live hosts at Compass to fuel your day’s mountain bike fun.
Later in the day, a prize package (worth over $1,200!) will be awarded to one lucky team.
