Salt Lake Challenge 2010

Location: Salt Lake City, Utah

Description: Join the fun and take the CHALLENGE!

This exciting ride is unlike any other you have ridden. First of all this is a team event! So grab your friend, partner, son, or daughter and prepare together. Second there is no set course! We will tell you where you need to stop, but how you get there is up to you as long as you stay on the roads. There will be some roads you will not be allowed to use. Third there will be some secret stops you will learn about along the way! And Fourth at each stop you and your partner will need to conquer a unique, fun, and whacky challenge!

This ride can best be described as a scavenger hunt on wheels; but instead of collecting things you will do fun challenges.
