After years of unsuccessful attempts at inventing a two-wheeled form of propulsion, Wilbur and Orville Bike finally realized the problem was that their prototypes were all screwed to the gymnasium floor. Achieve functional mobility with today's Groupon to Urban Bike Adventure on Saturday, September 10 at 10 a.m. at The Sports and Social Club. Pick up your Urban Bike Adventure packet from 9 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $40, you get entry for a two-person team (up to a $90 value).

Urban Bike Adventure pits teams of two or three against one another in a combination obstacle course, scavenger hunt, and road race. Teams carry a clue sheet to solve puzzles and riddles to locate checkpoints around the city while also engaging in festive challenges such as bike polo, bike jousting, and locating Carmen San Diego. Teams have three hours to try to conquer all the checkpoint challenges and zip back to the finish line in one piece. Like VHS tapes of The Price is Right, the checkpoints can be finished in any order. Afterward, all participants are invited to an after-party at which the top 10 teams will receive medals and everyone will be festooned with a T-shirt, swag bag, and entry to raffle prizes and post-race giveaways. Challengers should tote along their own bikes, bike helmets, and cameras or cell phones to take pictures as part of the challenges.
