Before you scroll to the bottom of this post to see if you won, we would like to thank each and every one of the participants for joining our first Ride and Seek Photo Scavenger Hunt. Because of you, we think this has been one of our most successful events, yet. We hope to continue having these types of events in the future.
Throughout the month of October, there were over 35 participants, including 12 who completed the entire set. There were over 410 amazing shots taken and who knows how many miles ridden. What amazed us the most, were all of people who did the challenge just so that they can explore Richardson.
As discussed in the rules for the scavenger hunt, each image submission counted as a entry and earned a raffle ticket. If you completed the assigned set of 14, you would earn double points. Each additional image (and there were some great ones), earned a bonus ticket. The more submissions you made, increased your odds of winning.
The range of tickets earned went from 1, all the way up to 53 per person, and the odds of winning were 1 in 600 (approximately). Each ticket drawn was randomly paired with a prize. Scroll down to see the results.

The highly anticipated Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Richardson is finally open for business. Not only has this become one of the hottest destinations in town, it also has an amazing lineup of bike racks that are in the shape of film reels.
Speaking of cool bike parking, the new Whole Foods in Addison has some very impressive bike racks that are in the shape of bicycles. It almost makes up for them leaving Richardson.
I’m glad that both of these businesses care enough about cyclists, and got really creative with their bike parking. This shows that there are some forward-thinking business owners that care about supporting alternate transportation, the local bike culture and a strong community.
I hope that bike parking, like this, continues to be an ongoing trend with new construction around town.

Unfortunately, because of scheduling conflicts, Bike Friendly Richardson won’t be hosting a “Cruise To The Cottonwood” ride this spring. That doesn’t mean you can’t ride there. In fact, we think bicycling the best way to get to the festival – especially on such a beautiful weekend.
Also, thanks to the folks at the City of Richardson, we were told that there will be plenty of bike parking at the entrance, close to Belt Line. While we’re on the topic of bike parking, there will also be parking set up at the Wildflower Festival in a couple of weeks.

What a nice surprise on my way home from work – I saw a small group of cyclists heading over to the Arapaho DART Station. They were taking the train into Dallas to be part of the Dallas Critical Mass. Read more about this at Suburban Assault.
