September 20th -30th, load up your sun screen, flippy floppies, bicycle, and camera phones…. it’s time to capture as many prize-winning pictures as possible!

The event is an Instagram photo-driven scavenger hunt with 23 different photo locations around Boulder. Points will be tallied and winners will be announced by Oct 7th at walkandbikemonth.org, communitycycles.org and on Community Cycles Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts

HOW IT WORKS:

  • Register an Instagram account.

  • Hunt away from September 20-30 posting photos of yourself in front of the places on the list. Only photos loaded between those dates will be counted toward your point total.

  • Use the hashtags provided with the respective clues. We will use the hashtags to find each photo submission so without the hashtag, our judges will not be able to vote on your picture.

  • Points will be tallied and winners will be announced by Oct 7th at walkandbikemonth.org, communitycycles.org and on Community Cycles Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts

PRIZES:

Prize pick-up will be at Community Cycles 2601 Spruce St the first week of October. Prize winners & times/dates for pick up will be listed on communitycyles.org.

  • The top 70 winners (in number of points) will win a Park Tool Multi-tool provided by our sponsor Alpine Bank.
  • The top 30 winners will win a Park Tool Multi-tool and a Month of Modern knit beanie.
