Bike Scavenger Hunt

When: Sun., Sept. 18, 6-10 p.m. 2011

Thousands of years ago, before automobiles and Facebook, there was a time when roads were shared. Walkers, bikers, horse-drawn carriages, stilts, you name it — they all used the same road. That’s a thing of the past though, right? Wrong. The Park Circle community in North Charleston has become dedicated to making the roads safer for cyclists. This week, they’ll host a bike scavenger hunt at the Mixson barn to raise awareness for bike safety. “As a motorist, I wanted to bring in some bike groups to talk about how we can share the road,” Thea Anderson, the event coordinator at Mixson, says. “To make it fun, I thought it’d be great for all of us to hop on our bikes and go find cool things in Park Circle for prizes.” Cyclists will be hunting for icons, items that showcase the neighborhood’s uniqueness. And food trucks like Strada Cucina, Snap'en Dogs, and Wholly Pops will keep you satisfied. Later — once everyone has stopped cycling, of course — Ice Box will be pouring affordable beer and wine to the tunes of DJ Rocky Horror, the live entertainment for the night.
