At this Sunday's New Belgium Urban Assault Ride you'll be able to test your navigational skills as an urban explorer, push your biking to the limit, and conquer quirky challenges. This cycling-centric event offers a chance for riders to embark on an obstacle-laden adventure through Minneapolis. So team up with a friend, and hold onto those handlebars as you wind through different checkpoints around the city on the nation's largest bike scavenger hunt. The ride is coming to 10 different cities across the country this summer, and event founder Josh Kravetz hopes that it will give participants the experience of "the best possible day on a bike." Sponsored by New Belgium Brewing, the event will finish with an after-party featuring bikes, brews, prizes, and a mustache dance-off. Let your competitive side loose, or take the whole family: Divisions include coed, male, female, and families (appropriate for those seven and up). Visit www.urbanassaultride.com for more info.
