The concept is simple: The teams of 2 riders get a manifest with lists of local store stops in the City of Richmond and needed items for Safe Harbor shelter, then they head out on bikes to see how many items they can scavenge and carry back to the finish line. The fastest riders to navigate the streets and checkout lines win prizes, although it is not all about speed. One of the options on the shopping list will be a perishable item which will take skill to deliver. And best of all, the pile of the collected items on the Safe Harbor wish list will be donated to the shelter for survivors of sexual and domestic violence in time for Valentine's Day!
Bring your own bike and helmet! A mountain bike, tandem bike, cyclocross bike or road bike will do. Even pull a stroller with your bike if you want to! But a helmet is required for all racers to participate!
The race begins and ends at the Richmond Bicycle Studio. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 winners in each category!
