Treasure Hunt

Date: 
17 September 2017
Type: 
Local Group Event (inc DATC and Audax Rides)
Cost: 
Free

Come and join the fun as we challenge our brains and our legs with a treasure hunt around the local area. The treasure hunt will be approximately 35 miles in length but you could do less distance ... or more. 

The start will be 9:30 am at the memorial in Stevenage Old Town and the route will be…?

Did you think it would be that easy?

“I’m not sure why I’m doing this, but I admit it’s a pleasure.
To be acting suspiciously while hiding some treasure.

You’ll pass places unfamiliar and others you’ll know. 
To collect all that’s required and this you must show.

So with answers to locate and a mascot to find.
Take part in an exercise of body and mind.

With air in your tyres and a smile on your face.
Remember it’s for fun and never a race.

For the winner, a prize, the glory, the fame.
And the rest of you all, just live with the shame.

Here’s a hint for the finish, it might help you think.
Just find where I’m hiding and maybe buy me a drink.”

Bona fortuna.
