Description: 

First Annual Mississippi Mills Bicycle Month Scavenger Hunt and Geocache Game

Come and join us on Saturday, June 9 in Almonte, Ontario for a bicycle powered scavenger hunt. The hunt will take you on a tour of well known man made and natural landmarks. Play as a team, family or individual.

We will be meeting in the parking lot behind Heritage Court at 14 Mill Street in Almonte at 9:00 am. Registration is free. Once you get the list of things to be hunted you are off on your tour until 11:00am. At 11:00am we meet in the parking lot to compare finds and celebrate with a draw for prizes. All participants will be eligible for the prize draw.

All you will need is a bike, pencil and a smile. Bringing along a gps device will add to the fun as some of the scavenger items will resemble the high tech “geocaching” hides. There will be people there to help you learn how to do this if you want to go that route. You may also want to bring a camera as some of these landmarks are definitely worth a picture.

As for the bicycling part of this activity, it’s pretty relaxed. All the finds are within a 2 square kilometer area. It’s really all about the fun of the hunt.

To help us organize the event it would be helpful but not mandatory if you could confirm by email to fred.mrg@sympatico.ca. Hope to see you there!
