This self-paced bike ride event will start and end at Sly Clyde Ciderworks (207 East Mellen St.). After teams collect letters from participating businesses, teams return to play words on over-sized boards to see who can build a word with the highest point value. This event is a great way to peek into some new businesses, bike casually, and play a classic board game.
