Here is what people said about their experience last year...

* Great clues, great vegan places to visit, fun teammate, delicious pizza at the end :)

* It was great, I didn't know what to expect, but it exceeded my hopes.

* I enjoyed meeting new people in the Portland vegan community and helping my teammates discover local veggie establishments.

* Well organized. grateful for the food at the end since there wasn't a minute to stop and eat lunch.

* Though I was not working and dont know how many folks came by any exposure for non vegans and for my business is a win.

* It was so much fun - great way to spend a day!

* It was a learning experience for us, as we recently moved to PDX and didn't have bikes yet nor up-to-date phone technology. Nonetheless, we persevered and won a cookbook!

* I had a great time!!

 

See you there!

    A solid 5 stars. We had fun, had to exercise our brains on those tough clues, found out about some "new to us" vegan businesses in Portland, used public transportation more than ever before and got to challenge ourselves. A big thank you to those who took the time to set up the clues, work with the businesses, etc. I look forward to next year and inviting friends to join in the fun!

    About 45 people competed last year among 15 teams. This year we are preparing for that same amount. It is not too rigorous and will include traveling up to 5-10 miles. All of the checkpoints are in close-in Portland and teams will either be biking or walking/busing.
