They Came, They Rode, They Hunted

Challenge: Give a Britto the finger.

Saturday afternoon, some 50 cyclists gathered at the Omni Metro Station downtown for the first Miami Bike Hunt, a team ride we organized with Emerge Miami to celebrate Florida Bike Month. We handed each of the 18 teams a list of challenges, ranging from the inane (“stink-eye a Hummer”) to the interpretive (“Find evidence of the conspiracy”) to the imperative (“Give a Britto the finger”). In their cunning, stoicism, and verve, each group of hunters would have made Papa Hemingway proud, but in the end only one team prevailed in this the first Miami Bike Hunt in the history of the universe. With 1855 points — a mere five points ahead of second place — Team Frenemies did everything from feeding a stray cat and photobombing unsuspecting tourists to tracking down a Yiddish Theatre turned South Beach nightclub and snapping the greatest moon shot since Apollo 11 (you’ll see).

In order to keep track of points, we had each team document their ride with photos. (Really, we just wanted to get as many pics of adults climbing trees as possible … while holding a rubber ducky to keep ‘em honest.) Thanks again to everyone who came out. It was a really fun day, and we definitely plan to organize another hunt in the near future (maybe May). Until then, here are some of the pixels.

Challenge: Take a picture of a teammate in mid-air jumping into a pool.

In between the Cars
Challenge: Find an out-of-state license plate.

Two challenges combined: Find an obelisk AND make an innuendo.

Challenge: Find a former Yiddish theatre.

NON-accidental Ass Cleavage
Challenge: Take a photo of accidental ass cleavage. (Technically, this was not accidental. Quoth Team Frenemie: “That chick rode by mooning us, so we caught up and snapped a pic at the light. To add to the raunchy factor, the passenger in the car just finished puking out the window. You can see the chunks in the pic. I love Miami.”)

Another good mid-air dive

Challenge: Crash a beach volleyball game.

Challenge: Get an octogenarian (or older) to take a picture holding a driver’s license.

Swing Jump
Challenge: Take a picture of a teammate in mid-air jumping of a swing.

Challenge: Misuse a coconut.

F Britto
As mentioned above, giving a Britto the finger was a 25-point challenge. Giving Britto himself the finger was worth 200 points. Alas, no one hit the jackpot.

Can’t ever see too much of this, particularly inside Britto Central. Bravo.

Stink eyeing a Hummer
Challenge: Stink-eye a Hummer.

Challenge: Take a picture of teammate playing in a public fountain.

Gas y Tree
Challenge diptych: Pump a stranger’s gas AND take a picture of a teammate in a tree.

Ball Boy
Challenge: Take a picture of a teammate being a ball boy/girl in a tennis match.

Best Charitable Act Ever
Challenge: Take a picture of a charitable act.


We posted the full challenge list on Facebook and will be posting a lot more photos there shortly.
