Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Putting together a Scavenger Hunt last minute...

So a friend of mine asked me to set up a scavenger hunt for this coming Friday's Plan-it-x fest in Brooklyn. It was supposed to be an option for folks who don't want to get arrested at critical mass, but it turned out i probably couldn't set it up in time with my job and such. Oh and the other reason that I have never set up a scavenger hunt before.... Either way, all the thinking about it got me wondering...what were some of your favorite items on previous scavenger hunt lists.....?

I used: beer, rocks, pieces of fruit, bus transfers, grocery store flyers, train schedules, mini-box of lucky charms, tourist maps (with advertisements), and, my favorite, parking garage tickets.

So you automatically put a 21+ disclaimer on your scavenger hunts? Thanks for shutting us young'ns out!

traffic cones....one of those little Mormon comic books....cocktail swizzle sticks and a crown from Burger King. If you use beer tell em all that they wont get em back at the end and you can drink for free all night.

If you're looking for some ideas for your Scavenger Hunt list, I've uploaded my recent list. You'll have to modify it for your town though.

I thought doing something for Plan It X sounded really strange, but I went with it.
