Start Time:
8:00 pm
Start Location:
A place of your choice
Description:
While we are unable to cycle together as a club, a cycle treasure hunt can provide us with a common goal for individual or household cycling. To participate, all you need to do is find the answers to any three of the clues while riding over the coming two weeks (between now and 8pm, on Monday 6 July). Do share your experiences of riding to collect the answers with the club on Facebook or by email to Steve.

For this hunt, there are 12 clues distributed from Wantage to the north and east, roughly in the triangle formed between Wantage, Abingdon and Didcot. Each clue is provided on the interactive googlemap accessed through the link below. Just click on a checkpoint to reveal the clue. No route between the clues is provided. It is for each rider to plan their own route(s) to collect the clues, depending on their starting point.

All clues are located in quiet, readily-accessible public places. Most clues are intended to draw attention to points and places of interest that we sometimes cycle through or past without really noticing. Do take the time to take in and enjoy your surroundings.

Click on the interactive map here

1. The clues are in no particular order. You could collect them in a single ride or on several rides over the two weeks if you want to.
2. Please do share your experience on the club Facebook page.
3. But please dont give away the answers!
4. If you do have trouble finding the answers, please let Steve know.
5. Please email your answers to Steve by 8pm on Monday evening (6 July),
6. The answers and results will be given out at the Virtual Pub Night on 7 July and subsequently through the website,
7. There are no prizes for being the first to complete the challenge but it may merit a mention, as might the most interesting, longest or shortest routes.
8. Above all, have fun, enjoy cycling and stay safe.
