'Bike Kern Virtual Scavenger Hunt' to celebrate National Bike Month and Bike Safety Awareness

Kern County Public Works

To celebrate National Bike Month and Bike Safety Awareness in May, Kern County Public Works, in partnership with Bike Bakersfield and the Kern Council of Governments (Kern COG), are hosting a Bike Kern Virtual Scavenger Hunt throughout the month and invite all Kern County residents to join in!

The virtual scavenger hunt encourages participants to hop on their bike and explore their community and nearby neighborhoods, while safely searching for tasks and assignments to complete on their mobile device. Keep in mind, always stop and park your bike in a safe location away from moving vehicles before checking in.

The scavenger hunt tasks and challenges include identifying bicycle facilities and snapping a photo, checking in at different GPS coordinates, scanning QR codes, watching video tutorials and answering bicycle safety questions, to name a few.

All participants will be eligible to win an e-bike donated by Pedego. The first 75 participants will receive a free tire patch and tire tool kit to take on their ride!
