I just got word of the LA Treasure Hunt, a bikes-only extravaganza that will take place all over the Los Feliz/Silver Lake/Echo Park/Koreatown area on Sunday, March 12th.
Here is a run down of how the event will work‚Ä¶.
*Everyone that participates is on bicycle.
*Teams will be made up of 4 to 5 people.
*At noon everyone who is a part of the LA Treasure Hunt will meet up at the Echo Park Lake. At the lake there will be a BBQ with free ice cream, food(vegan friendly) and some beverages.
The treasure hunt is made up 10 clues. The team to solve the ten clues the fastest will be given the grand prize, which is well over $2,500 in swag from dozens of record labels, clothing lines and gift certificates to different restaurants and stores in Los Angeles- the list of sponsors will be announced next week. At 7:00pm the treasure hunt will end and right afterwards an after party will be taking place at the Echo, where a number of bands will be playing(The Joggers, We Are Wolves, plus a few special guest), peeps will be spinning records and everyone that participates in the event will get in for free. The purpose of this event is to bring friends together and have a goodtime. It‚Äôs all about the goodtimes.
So not only does this sound totally awesome but it helps raise money and material for the Union Rescue Mission.
The Union Rescue Mission is the largest mission in Los Angeles that houses hundreds of homeless families. A majority of the missions in Los Angeles just feed the homeless, let them shower and put them back on the street at night. They do not work with them and play as a helping hand to help get them back into work.
C’mon, fun, biking, sun, helping people, uh. . .FUN, who can resist that? Not to mention that we here at blogging.la can’t seem to stop talking about riding our bikes. Do I see a blogging.la team forming yet? Yeah? Yeah?
