May 1-31, 2014 – Bicycle Scavenger Hunt
21 places within the Centre Region will be posted on the below links on May 1. You may compete as an individual, with a partner, or as a team of 3 or more.  All riders or groups must take a photo with their bikes at the designated locations.  Some locations require you to leave your bikes parked nearby, however.  Pictures need to be submitted throughout the month to Clay Chiles, Environmental AmeriCorps Member at State College Borough: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . If pictures match the clues provided, you will get that location checked off. These pictures will randomly be shared and celebrated through CRBC, SCASD and State College Borough social media, including @BikeStCollege on twitter.

A top prize will be awarded in each category for the most locations ridden to between May 1 and May 30.  Also, a raffle ticket will be given to each individual for every 5 locations. Raffle tickets will be used for various other prizes.  Winners will be announced on May 31st at the Extravaganza! (see below -- you may need to click on "read more" or here to see the full article)

Have fun exploring the SC area with your family and friends!

or more during the month of May, they may bring their calendar to their PE teacher to join the "20 Days in May Club".  A prize drawing will be held for eligible students.  Individual schools will be offering a variety of bicycling events during the month of May as well, like the "Tour de Corl Street" (see below).
