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!
