Description

Local active transportation advocacy groups are teaming up to present a bicycle scavenger hunt. The “Pilsen Treasure Hunt” will feature interesting and colorful locations around Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood and participants of varying bicycling abilities are encouraged to attend.The event is presented by Ciclovamos (web: http://ciclovamos.org) and Go Pilsen (Web: http://gopilsen.org/)

Participants will meet at the Dvorak Park Fieldhouse, 1119 W. Cullerton, Chicago IL 60608 on the east side of the field house at 7 PM on Saturday July 12 2014, and will embark upon the “hunt” at 7:30 in teams of 1-3, armed with a list of locations, tasks, and items to discover.  Many of the tasks involve taking a picture of the "treasure" to show, so be sure to have a fully charged picture capable cell phone or digital camera. The event will end at 9 P.M. with a social gathering at a location to be announced.  Participation is free but participants should bring cash for food or refreshments as needed along the ride. Participants should be comfortable traveling by bicycle on city streets.

The event is presented as part of a series of events featuring the Pilsen neighborhood as a great place to walk, bike, and use transit.

Thanks to those that planned and supervised the scavenger hunt! We had a small turn out (weather perhaps?) but we hope that those who participated had FUN and learned a bit about Pilsen!
