Bicycle related games

Does anyone know of any recreational bicycle-related games or contests? I'm organizing a ride that we will have multiple stops for socializing and stuff, but would like to fill some of that time with bicycle-related games...any ideas?
Thanks

When we were kids, we used to play "bike tag", the goal being to make whoever was "it" touch the ground with something other than the tires of his bike - foot, butt, head, anything. Then whoever make "it" touch the ground got to be "it".

have a contest to see who can cover some short distance the slowest. Great way to work on bike handling skills.

my boys and I sometimes play bike-combat, where we use a basketball court. We try to force the others out of bounds or to put their foot down. Basically devolves into a contest of who can track-stand the best when you get pinned against the bounds.

Cool, thanks for the ideas. I was also thinking about bike frisbee and bike limbo.

I've never done one of these but motorcycle clubs use these as fund raisers, poker runs.

Bike tag played with a tennis ball can be fun too, especially when the riders are all on junk 16" wheel childrens' bikes. It was an entertaining way to blow off some steam after a 10-12 hour work day in the shop.

"Shadow Tag" played in a large empty parking lot with a late afternoon sun. To tag someone, run over their shadow.
