Spooks & Spokes Bike Scavenger Hunt Ride

We've had a lot of requests for a trail ride.... and well you know we don't just do the average ride, so let's go on a scavenger hunt! 

Get your team of two ready for our first, scavenger hunt bike ride through the trails of Omaha. 

Details:
Team Size: 2 People

Cost: $40 per team, includes event T-shirt... and maybe some surprises.

Time: 12:00 PM - Yes, we know it's a Husker Game Day and we will have the game on in the brewery (let's hope for an evening game).

How's this going to work: at 12:00 PM, teams will be given a number of questions, this could be like a test, a crossword puzzle, a fill in the blank... you'll find out at 12:01. You'll have to answer these questions to identify the locations you need to go to in Omaha to collect an item, perform a task, or share that you were there to collect points. To get to these locations you will need to ride the Omaha Trail system and possibly a few neighborhoods. There will be no riding on major streets like 72nd, 96th, Center, Pacific...etc. All teams will need to return to Pint 9 Brewery with the items they've collected from the various stops by 3:00PM. We will then see what top three teams have accumulated the highest number of points and declare our winners! 

Post Event Fun: Pint 9 beers, The Dire Lion Food Truck, and hundreds of your bike friends for a post ride party.

Registration: Register early, as those who do may get a few more details about the event... before the event! T-shirt deadline is October 1st.
