Bike, overcome obstacles, earn points, have fun!

The Lansing Bike Co-op is excited to team up with Lansing Bike and Seek for a great fundraising event on Saturday, November 13th! Come join us for a family-friendly bicycle event. Teams or individuals can start as early as 2pm at Turner Dodge house (and as late as 5pm) and wind their way along the river trail, participating in point-earning obstacles along the way. Costumes are encouraged! A donation of $10 per person is suggested. Afterward, we’ll meet at Ozone’s Brewhouse for food, drink and a raffle from 6-10p. Ozone’s has generously offered the first two drinks at half price for anyone who participates or donates to the event. Money raised will help to support our annual kid’s bike drive. We’re aiming to give away 75 bicycles along with helmets to Lansing area youth this holiday season.

A bicycle treasure hunt around the city of Lansing. Organized to get people exploring the city by bike and solving fun puzzles with friends!

Organized by: Claire, Damien, Jill, Mike and Ron

Sponsored by: Glassen Rhead McLean Campbell & Schumacher, Foresight Group, and Eastside Compost Company.

"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."

"I loved this event SO MUCH! I hadn't done any previous bike and seeks so I don't know how this format compares, but I would absolutely do it just like this again. The QR code/dashboard interface was super easy to use and I liked that the clues made us think but weren't frustrating. And we learned some great Black history! Thank you!"
