The Roots Pursuit
The Roots Pursuit
Since 2011, The Roots Pursuit team bicycle event has brought cycling madness, environmental awareness and 12 lively challenges to downtown Coeur d’Alene.
In the most non-serious bike event of the season, two or three person teams start from the Shared Harvest Community Garden and pedal to one of three “hubs”, where they have to complete physical, mental, and/or creative challenges and get to the next hub.
Points are awarded based on team performance and completion within a two-hour time limit…and the creativity of your costume, optional. But don’t sweat it. This is a fairly laid back event – unless you’re fiercely competitive! Just bring a bicycle, some teammates, and a willingness to have some fun!
Compost Alley ~ Teams ride a designated block radius (provided a map) through alleyways to search for composters. Each composter found will have a number on it. Teams must write down the number on their score card. The more composters found the more points they get.
Know Your By-Products ~ Teams sift through buckets of by-proucts (rancid spent grain from breweries, rotting egg shells from restaurant, coffee bean chaff from coffee roasters) to search for a small ball that opens up with a trivia question inside about that particular by-product.
This event benefits Community Roots Local Food Share, which is a volunteer based program that collects & then distributes surplus produce from backyard gardens to food assistance facilities in our community.
Teams consist of 2-3 people.
