Pacific Beach by Bike - Sat, Aug 7
Urban Dare Pacific Beach by Bike runs Saturday, August 7. We will kickoff at Noon. The race will start and finish at Kate Sessions Park. Race-day check-in will begin at 11:00am and we will be taking registration up to the start of the race.
We look forward to hosting our first bicycle race. We will have hot dogs and beverages at the finish.
You should bring a cell phone and a digital camera to show your pictures at the end of the race. A cell phone camera will work. Maps are also handy and you should have someone to call to help look up clues. I also recommend a pen or pencil to take notes.
Urban Dare, www.urbandare.com, is the race where smarts can beat speed. Teams of 2 solve clues to find checkpoints where they must take photos or perform dares.
Once you are out of the starting blocks, you will pick up your clue sheets and be on your way. You can call friends as much as you want for help on clues. For the checkpoints that mention a dare, you must check in with the Urban Dare official, accomplish your task, and get your passport stamped before moving on. On checkpoints that mention a photo, you must get a photo with both team members to show you were both there.
This is a team race. You must be together throughout the race. At checkpoints with dares, you must accomplish a task and get your passport stamped to move on to the next checkpoint. Dares range from throwing a bulls-eye, doing a climbing wall, completing a puzzle or eating something (things people like, not bugs).
We expect the winners will finish the race in about 2 hours and most of you will finish under 4 hours. We are working to provide a fun-filled day for you, while providing some good challenges.
See you at the races.
