No groups or gathering? No problem! Join the no-contact Scavenger Hunt. Head out by foot or by bike into your community to see how many items you can find from our list, share your photos, and be entered to win a prize!
How it Works:
Sign up with your email address to register. Everyone is welcome to participate, but you must be 18 years or older to register. If you aren't 18 or older, ask a parent or guardian to join your team!
Gather your gear–you’ll need a camera, our list of items to find, a face mask, and water to stay hydrated.
Head out into your community to look for everything on our list of items before September 30, 2020.
Take a picture or video of each item you find, and share them on social media–be sure to tag your photos with #walkandrollstanislaus.
Each week, we'll hold a prize raffle for registered participants. You could win a gift card, bike safety gear, or other great prizes!
Rules and Tips to Participate
Follow state and local guidelines on group gatherings and social distancing–stay at least 6 feet away from others.
Wear a face mask, and wear a helmet if you're riding a bike.
Tag your photos with #walkandrollstanislaus to earn a Walk and Roll badge and be featured on our website!
While you're on the hunt, consider how the items to find make the community safer and more enjoyable for walking and biking.
Items to Find
A Park Near Your Home
Parks come in all shapes and sizes. It could be a small plaza, big playground, baseball diamond, basketball court, or a walking trail along a river—wherever you love to go to play or enjoy nature.
School in Your Neighborhood
Did you know there are over 200 schools in Stanislaus County? Show us what it’s like to walk or bike to a school near you.
Bicycle lanes are dedicated spaces for bicyclists to ride on the street. They are usually separated from cars, trucks, and buses by a solid white line or a striped “buffer” space several feet wide.
Creative Bike Rack
Bike racks help keep bikes secure, but they can also be fun and creative–some are unique shapes, like a bike, a star, or an animal. Can you find a creative bike rack?
Market, or Food Truck
Where is your favorite place to eat that you can walk or bike to? Find a restaurant, cafe, market, food truck, or any other spots you can think of!
A speed hump is designed to slow down traffic on streets. They typically reduce vehicle speeds to 15-20 miles per hour, which makes the road safer for people walking and biking.
Statue or Sculpture
Stanislaus County is full of historical statues and public sculptures–find one near you!
Murals make public art accessible to everyone and add color, vibrancy, and character to communities. Murals can have therapeutic effects for mental health, and provide social, cultural, and economic benefits.
Curb extensions are designed to make intersections safer by slowing down turning vehicles and shortening the walking distance between the curbs.
Off-street paths provide a space for walking and biking that is off the street and separated from vehicle traffic. These paths are comfortable and safe for people of all ages and abilities to walk and bike.
Some streets are marked with a “sharrow” symbol in the middle of the lane. These are places where bicycles share the full lane with cars and other vehicles.
Marked crosswalks are painted with white lines or zebra stripes at intersections or in the middle of blocks. Can you find a safe, well-marked crosswalk?
Curb ramps are sloped surfaces that make sidewalks accessible for everyone, including people using strollers, wheelchairs, or other mobility devices.
Bike Route Sign
Be on the lookout for bike route signs near bike trails or bike lanes. They are green with a bike symbol, and help people find bike routes nearby.
Bonus: School Zone Sign
School zones are marked with a variety of signs to keep the roads safe. Some signs require drivers to slow down at certain times of the day when school is in session.
