PhotoVelo is a super rad bicycle scavenger hunt in which the list is the opposite of lame. They’re not looking for a gnawed pencil or a used Kabbalah string. They’re looking for amazing things like a team member dressed in a quinceañera gown … for serious. (Also, that was a challenge from the past so don’t go all cheaterface and try to knock one out early.) In order to get credit for each item on the list, you have to take a picture, get the pictures developed and make it back to home base by 5 p.m. Pedal in at 5:01 p.m. and you’re disqualified. The hunt takes you through Downtown Dallas, the Arts District, the Cedars and Deep Ellum and the winning team of two or four takes home a Lee Harvey’s gift certificate. Entry is free and participants will receive happy hour prices all day at Lee Harvey’s (1807 Gould St.), which is where the race kicks off promptly at noon on Sunday.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
