More Deets: this is designed to be a fun event for riders of all ability levels and ages. although there is a modicum of competition associated with it, the main goal is to meet new riders and have fun. we will meet at the trailhead and sort out teams. if you have a partner already then you're set. if we need to pair up we'll take care of that too.
Each rider gets two Trivial Pursuit cards with six questions on each card. At intervals that you select you will ask your partner the questions on your card.
Throughout the ride each group has to stop 11 times and ask ask each other the 11 trivia questions in order. You can stop wherever and whenever you like.
If both riders answer the question correctly you get to keep riding.
If either of you misses the question you earn a time penalty based on the number of the question you’re on (you can only be penalized once per stop, so if the first rider misses the question there’s no need to ask the second rider his/her question)
First 5 questions = one minute penalty each
Second 3 questions = two minute penalty each
Third 3 questions = three minute penalty each
Bonus Question - Each rider gets a bonus question that is double or nothing. If you miss a question you can choose to try the Bonus Question. Your partner asks you the next question on your card and if you get it right it wipes out your wrong answer. If you miss it you double your time penalty.
