This Saturday: Multi-Modal Madness!

Register Online Now!

...or use the mail-in form

Quick! How would you get from downtown to south campus, then to the east side and on to Normaltown, as quickly as possible without using a car,a moped, or taxi?

Multi-Modal Madness is your chance to find out.

In the MMM challenge, teams will try to reach as many checkpoints as possible in three hours- no private combustion engines allowed! Checkpoints will feature trivia and transportation-related challenges. Teams will accumulate points by completing challenges, correctly answering trivia, and reaching more checkpoints than other teams.

On the day of the event, each team will receive a packet, that will include a BikeAthens Bike Map, Athens Transit's Saturday bus schedules, and a list of checkpoints where teams can earn points by completing challenges. Teams will try to complete as many challenges as possible before returning to the event HQ by 3:00 pm.

Prizes available from The Hub and Athens Downtown Development Association!

Registration forms are now being accepted- register online today to ensure your team's participation. We will also accept hard copy registrations the morning of the event, but space is limited.

Email chair[at] to express your interest in helping to make this happen, come to one of our weekly meetings at Trappeze Pub (5:30 pm, Tuesdays), or join the planning team list-serv.
