A bike scavenger hunt? With folding bikes and a salmon theme? That’s a thing? Yep! And it all went down last weekend on the streets of Portland.
The inaugural Brompton Urban Challenge — a.k.a. Great Salmon Run — was a big success! Thank you to everyone who showed up to play and all the volunteers and crew who helped make it happen.
We had 20 players broken up into teams of two to four people. Participants came from as far away as Toronto and we also had a few folks from Arizona (with the Brompton Mafia no less). The goal was to best represent the spirit of salmon and Portland whilst completing a number of fun physical challenges and tasks. The tasks were posted to Instagram with the #BUCPDX hashtag which was used by our panel of judges to verify the completion of each one. Along the way, there were surprises and hijinx galore as teams tried to outwit their opponents, take great photos and videos (there were prizes for the best ones) and decipher checkpoint locations from our dastardly clues.
Here’s how it went:
At the end of the friendly competition we met at Base Camp Brewing in inner southeast for food and drinks. Prizes were announced, new friends were made and merry times ensued. All in the name of fun on bikes.
