Since 2011, The Roots Pursuit team bicycle event has brought cycling madness, environmental awareness and 12 lively challenges to downtown Coeur d’Alene. In the most non-serious bike event of the season, two or three person teams start from the Shared Harvest Community Garden and pedal to one of three “hubs” where they have to complete physical, mental, and creative challenges before moving on to the next hub. Points are awarded based on team performance and completion within a two-hour time limit and the creativity of optional costumes. Bring a bicycle, teammates and a willingness to have some fun. The Roots Pursuit benefits Community Roots Local Food Share, which is a volunteer based program that collects and distributes surplus produce from backyard gardeners and farmers’ markets to local food assistance facilities.
