Pulse Pedal Pursuit

Competition
Description

The hunt is on! The Pulse Pedal Pursuit is an all-day celebration of all things RVA, and our new public transit options! Scour the Broad Street corridor on foot, by RVA Bike Share, or by the brand new GRTC Pulse bus rapid transit system. We’ll provide the list of destinations, all you need is a team (optional…you can go solo!), and a smart phone to document your journey. Go your own pace, and meet us at the end of day at River City Roll to tally points, declare ultimate winners, and share stories from the day. Push through the Pursuit and the glory is yours!

The Basics

You have from 9am – 5pm to try to collect as many points as possible by visiting various sites in and around the new GRTC Pulse bus rapid transit route.  This 7.6 mile route along Broad Street and Main Street covers all sorts of cool stops and links many must see destinations throughout our city from Willow Lawn to the west to Rocketts Landing to the East.  Sites will include restaurants, breweries, art and history destinations, parks and more.  You will be given a list of these sites at packet pick-up that will be grouped together by neighborhoods and bus stops along the route.  Each site will be assigned a point value and participants will have the opportunity to earn bonus points by hitting a certain number of spots in each neighborhood as well as by answering trivia questions at some of our highlighted destinations.  You can go for speed or keep it casual, but you are only allowed to get around to the spots by using your feet for walking and running or by using our two new transit options in RVA Bike Share and Pulse Bus Rapid Transit.  You can do this solo or make it a team effort, just keep in mind that everyone must register!
