BIKE & ROLL BLOWOUT

Sharpen your smarts, strap on a helmet, and get ready to win The Bike & Roll Blowout! This puzzle and creativity competition played from anywhere was created exclusively for SF Bike & Roll Week by our friends at Handstand. Over the course of the week, you’ll compete — remotely, of course! — with teams around the city to solve tricky puzzles and film awesome videos. And the only way to toast the competition is to get out on your bike, scooter, skateboard, wheelchair, or skates. Even walking counts! 

Winners will receive awesome messenger bags, courtesy of Timbuk2, and gift bundles from Sports Basement!

Important:

  • A “team” can consist of 1-5 people. At least one member of a team must have access to a smartphone to access the app, but not every team member needs a smartphone. Come up with a team name with your teammates before registering!
