Lansing Bike and Seek 2022

Spoke's Choice

The 7th Annual Lansing Bike and Seek is on! It's a choose your own adventure this year with two ways to participate:

a) your team meets us at the Fish Ladder at 2pm on July 30th. We start all the teams at the same time and you can compete in real-time with the other teams. We'll have an after party at Ozone's Brewhouse. This will be similar to our pre-COVID events except the clues will still be solved on your phone.

b) your team does the course anytime it's open: July 30 - August 7. This will be similar to the last two years; you can go at your own pace and enjoy your ride without worrying about close quarters.

Suggested donation of $20/team. Course will be ~10 miles. If you are planning to use option (a), please register below.

Let us know you're coming and register now!

Bike, overcome obstacles, earn points, have fun!

This event was in collaboration with the Lansing Bike Co-op and was a tweak on our typical format. The locations could be done in any order and instead of solving clues, your team completed activities and received a number of points based on your performance and intensity levels!

It snowed in the morning, and remained cold the entire day, but 4 teams completed the course, and many more joined them for the after-party and fundraiser at Ozone Brewhouse.

Still-COVID Edition

Second year of the new format and the 6th annual Lansing Bike and Seek went swimmingly! 84 teams completed the course. There were some very hot days on the course and those who waited until the last few days must have been sweating!

COVID Edition

Big changes this year, but the 5th Annual Lansing Bike and Seek was a hit! We switched from paper clues all done in one afternoon to a digital format spread across a few weeks to give everyone space. All went off without a hitch; except for ~20 minutes of downtime from a team who scanned a clue in the middle of the course without scanning the starting clue first. We should have expected that!

79 teams completed the course and the feedback on the new format was overwhelmingly positive. We're very likely to continue this format moving forward. Less paper and easier to organize.

"I liked the more obscure parks, I found places that were within 10 minutes of me that I have not been to previously and will now go and visit. Thank you for doing this, and I hope it continues in the same format in the coming years. My whole family was able to partake in this and enjoyed it immensely."

"This event was SO much fun, i have already told a few of my friends from Traverse City that they need to come down to participate next year. Clues were hard but thats exactly how they should be, no freebies! I really liked having it over a few days rather than it being all on one day, would like to see it set up that way next year too. Kudos to those who thought of all the clues and planned this out, I was very very impressed. Thank you for the afternoon of exercise, learning, and fun!!!!"
