The Great Guildford Bicycle Treasure Hunt 2016

If you missed our Bike Week activity, The Great Guildford Bicycle Treasure Hunt, you missed a great morning.  We had divine weather, a lovely bunch of riders, snacks, drinks, and prizes.

And the clues!  They were designed to take riders all over Guildford and to show them how easy it is to cycle Guildford, but also how much there is that we just don’t notice when we’re hurrying by.

We are very grateful to our sponsors for this event.  All the food and drink was donated by Great Northern Meat Supply, Guildford Bakery, and Bolt Coffee Roasters.  We have Midland Cycles, Bolt Coffee Roasters, The Frisbee Shop, and BCF Midland to thank for their generosity there.

And the winners were:

First in, all correct child: Mango Peelers
First in, all correct adult: Netti Speedy Spokes
Matching bike (s) and riders (s): Megan and Allie
Best decorated bike: Zach Coyte-King
Numbers clues: The A Team
Easter clues: the Francis Family
Jumble word: ChokozRider all in black: Nancy Caceres
Rider (s) all in pink: Stephanie and Hannah Dobell
