Are you up to the challenge of perfectly executing a 79-mile road course through wind turbine-dotted, insanely flat, and sparsely populated central Indiana farm country? If so, you'll be rewarded by having drawn a classic iconic video game invader so massive it s visible from space!
Join us for the first-ever Area 79 Bicycle Tour - we ll provide a clearly marked route and GPX navigation files to help you win this game, but we highly recommend recording this ride with a GPS tracking device or smartphone app as proof of the impressive GPS art you'll create.
Plan on completing your mission with minimal support, as there will be only 1 water refill station near the halfway point, with snacks and drinks available for purchase.
Registration: Each rider is required to donate a minimum of one quarter (25 cents), but all riders are encouraged to donate as many quarters as they can, as ALL registration proceeds will be donated to Video Game Palooza, an Indiana-based non-profit 501c3 foundation dedicated to motivating interest in STEM research and learning among America's youth by tapping into students natural passion for playing and making video games.
