Explore downtown Clermont like never before: by bike in a scavenger hunt.
The city of Clermont will host the second annual Cycle & Seek Bicycle Scavenger Hunt from noon-3pm Saturday, March 23, starting and finishing at Waterfront Park, 330 3rd St. The event is free and all levels and types of riders are encouraged to participate, a news release states. Riders should bring their own bikes. The Clermont Triathlon Club has donated 25 new kids helmets to participants while supplies last.
“We’re excited to bring this fun signature event back for the second year,” City Manager Darren Gray says in the release. “This is a great way to showcase many of Clermont’s new and established businesses in our bicycle-friendly downtown.”
Teams of two to four people will discover unique local businesses and interesting details about the city. The path of the hunt spans the downtown waterfront area, as well as Lake Hiawatha Preserve. Each stop will have either a clue or an activity. Participants can get some exercise, enjoy the outdoors, and take in historical and scenic views while taking pictures and testing their knowledge of downtown.
Prizes will be awarded to the fastest teams and best-decorated bikes. Plus, don’t miss the after-party with a DJ in the Highlander Pavilion at Waterfront Park.
Register at clermontfl.gov/events in advance or the day of the event starting at 11am in the Highlander Pavilion. For more information, call 352.708.5975.
