Open to riders of all ages and designed as a casual self-paced ride, participants bicycle through the Houston Heights and surrounding areas. From Marmion Park, riders can choose between the 20-mile ride and scavenger hunt, or a shorter 5-mile ride and scavenger hunt for families — or both.
Each rider receives a rally map, rally card and scavenger hunt clue list. There will be one combination check point/water station mid-way on the course. The rally card must be validated by a rally volunteer at this check point in order for the participant to be eligible for prizes. Prizes are awarded to the riders who correctly identify the most mystery sights along the route.
After the ride, celebrate at the Post Ride Party starting at 3:30 p.m. followed by the Awards Ceremony at 4:30 p.m. The festivities include entertainment, door prizes and refreshments, including picnic fare, beverages and more.
The first 300 registrants receive a commemorative logo water bottle. Riders of the classic 20-mile route may start as early as 8 a.m. The 5-mile Family Ride begins at 2 p.m. All riders must finish by 4 p.m. to be eligible for awards and prizes, and must be present to win. All Kids riding the 5-mile course receive an award.
