This Weekend the Tenth Annuak MAYPRIL FOOLS FUN RIDE is back.
We’re proud to announce that our TENTH annual Maypril Fools Fun Ride will be taking place Saturday, May 12th! This is the longest-running scavenger hunt event around, and our focus is always on fun as opposed to speed. We invite riders of all sorts to take part! Basically, you’ll be given a manifest (HUGE list of checkpoints) aound the city to ride to – some of them real, some of them fake – and you route yourself as you see fit. Some checkpoints will be as simple as answering a clue from the manifest. Other checkpoints will require you to pull of some task or stunt, where you will be judged on your performance and scored accordingly. In the past we’ve included stuff like tricycle racing, karaoke contests, drawing contests, etc. There are also several stops at bars and venues around Philadelphia, and at the locations of several of our friend and sponsor companies around town. The winner is the person who has the most points at the end of the race. Regardless of whether you are going for the win, or just hanging out and taking it easy at a few checkpoints, you’re guaranteed to have a great time!
We always make one-time run of limited edition tees for the event, and this year is no different. We have Pete Whitney from Outlaw Print Company making the shirts this time around. For ten bucks preregistered by May 5th, you’ll get event entry, a tee shirt, and entry to the after party at the Barbary (featuring cheap drinks and two floors featuring several dj’s). After the prereg deadline, tees are NOT guaranteed (probably only about 10% of people who register late or day-of will get tees), so register now!
We love to give out prizes, and will be making some special bags just for this event! We also have our longtime friends and sponsors: Outlaw Magick, Cadence, Chuey Hats, Fabric Horse, Mollywoppers NYB, Bicycle Revolutions, and Hanford Cycles.
