You can help celebrate Florida Bicycle Month throughout the month of March by joining the second free self-guided “Bike Your Own City” biking scavenger hunt, hosted by Forward Pinellas.
Throughout the month of March, participants will be challenged to find 20 items while biking throughout their own community and submit a “selfie” or picture of their bike using the interactive online form.
“Bicycling plays such an important role in the lives of so many Pinellas County residents and visitors. The virtual “Bike Your Own City” Scavenger Hunt is a great way for everyone to celebrate Florida Bike Month and learn how important it is to keep each other safe on our roads and trails,” says Forward Pinellas Chair and St. Petersburg Councilmember Darden Rice. “I am especially excited about the partnership with our local bike shops and the excellent community art project to increase safety awareness and bike advocacy.”
Once you register, you’ll receive the scavenger hunt locations and instructions for how to show off your “selfie.” You’ll also have the opportunity to support local businesses, get involved with the Forward Pinellas social media campaign, and even win a t-shirt, bike lights, gift cards and more. Keep an eye out for the Tuesday Trivia on social media and you could win a gift certificate to a local bike shop.
The Safety Harbor Art and Music Center (SHAMC) will be creating free, custom “Bike Your City” yard signs that you can pick up at several local bike shops.
The Scavenger Hunt takes place from March 1 – 31, 2021 and interested participants can register here: bit.ly/byc21
