Bike Week Scavenger Hunt!

June 15 @ 12:00 pm 5:00 pm

Hunt must be completed by 5pm Saturday.

You can do this all in one go, over multiple days, with a group of friends or individually – whatever works best for you.  However, all participants will be entered into the draw as solo participants. As long as you hand in your clue sheet to the staff at the final stop sometime between Wed-Sat, you will be entered into that day’s draw. There will be one daily winner drawn from Wednesday to Friday and three winners drawn on Saturday. Please note that entries past open event times will not be guaranteed entry into the daily draw.

For the starting location: solve the magic eye posted to the Park Alleys Instagram Wednesday at noon. Go to that location during the open event times, and the next clue will be on the wall somewhere inside. There will also be a stack of clue sheets – be sure to grab one and fill out the names of each stop before handing it in at the end.  

The day you hand in your clue sheet at the last stop is the day you will be entered in for a draw. 

Please take your time and enjoy interacting with the participating businesses throughout the course. There are a lot of treats to be enjoyed along the way, so no need to rush.

Approximate distance is 7-10 KM, and can be accessed primarily through the cycling networks, or on roads for more direct routes.

You will need: a phone and a pen, access to Instagram,  and we suggest a helmet, lights, water, sunscreen and make sure to dress for the weather.

Have fun! Safety first! Share the road and smile and wave!

Bike Week Scavenger Hunt

CLUE: Magic-eye image

Magic-eye (stereogram) image puzzle, and hints to solve or “see” it.

FIRST METHOD: Hold the center of the image on your phone right up to your nose. It should be blurry. Focus as though you are looking through the image into the distance. Very slowly move the image away from your face until the two squares above the image turn into three squares. If you see four squares, move the image farther away from your face until you see three squares. If you see one or two squares, start over!

When you clearly see three squares, hold the page still and the hidden image will magically appear. Once you perceive the hidden image and depth, you can look around the entire 3D image. The longer you look, the clearer the illusion becomes. The farther away you hold the page, the deeper it becomes. Good Luck!

SECOND METHOD: Raise your index finger and hold it in front of your face, about as far away as you would have the magic eye image. Now, look past your finger and focus on something beyond your finger. It helps if it’s something specific, a picture on a wall or something like that. You will notice your index finger appears to duplicate in your vision. Now, focus on your finger. You will notice the picture on the wall is duplicated in your vision. If you continue to switch your focus between your finger and the picture on the wall, you will be performing the very action necessary to quickly resolve the magic eye images.

If you really can’t see it, please send us a message and ask or read the fine print 😉
