The experiences described in these posts were Steve & Mic’s at the time they took the ride. Each rider’s experience is unique. These posts do not describe what is usual or likely for the ride described.
The Lobo Loco Arts & Crafts Mini rally was an 8 Hour Motorcycle Scavenger Hunt. You can start and end anywhere. After you start, you have up to 8 hours to collect as many locations as possible.
Themed location information was provided prior to the event allowing you to start plotting your bonus locations. The rally flag will be a drawing of you on your motorcycle, which you create yourself.
Bonuses included art, sculptures, carvings, stained glass, mosaics, murals, graffiti, galleries, art schools, craft breweries, rock balancing and glass blowing (among other options). Some needed to be in different cities and there were some other limiting criteria.
In addition to collecting bonus points from a few mandatory categories, you must also ride 187 miles in order to be considered a finisher.
We finished in 7th place out of 20 who started the rally, scoring 7,176 points. We only lost 1 bonus worth 333 points due to a locked door that kept us from getting a good pic of the inside of a stained glass window (see if you can spot the pic we tried to pass off), but even with those points, our finishing position remains the same.
Of course now, everywhere we go, we see sculptures and murals. All in all it was a fun rally and gave us the opportunity to plan, route, and execute/adjust a plan. All good practice for the upcoming IBR!
