On Sunday, October 28, 10 teams of three female athletes dressed in their most creative costumes participated in Venture Race Hawaii – Biki Edition. The competitors cycled away at 7:30 a.m. from the Biki Stop at the Ala Moana Beach Park entrance located at Atkinson Drive and Ala Moana Drive.

 

During the lighthearted, yet heated competition, the teams had to decipher clues and Biki their way to five Biki Stops located from Ala Moana to Downtown Honolulu, to test their prankster mettle during five wacky challenges. Upon arriving at each location, the teams completed the challenges and posted video or pictorial evidence of themselves completing the tasks. Their challenges included:

 

  1. popping orange balloons at a pumpkin patch with only their bodies to receive their clues,
  2. a panoramic photo challenge at a cemetery,
  3. a hill slide and “Thriller” dance at the Ehime Maru Memorial,
  4. silly pics in front of the pumpkin sculpture near Bloomingdales,
  5. and an all-team broomstick race in the water at Ala Moana Beach Park.

All team members were Biki members, the majority of which used the Free Spirit Plan, which gives users 300 minutes to use anytime for just $20. No entry fee was required. In the spirit of the holiday season, participants were asked to donate an outfit or piece of clothing to the YWCA Oahu’s Dress For Success. The challenge resulted in 40 pieces of clothing to the local nonprofit that helps women by providing them with professional clothing as they search for employment.

 

Participants took over the Biki-gram story to document the day. Follow @GoBikiHI to watch the fun challenges from yesterday's Venture Race.

 

This year’s Venture Race Hawaii was in honor of participant Lori McCarney who will be stepping down as CEO of Bikeshare Hawaii at the end of October. The race date was moved up from December to celebrate Lori’s retirement.
