What is Operation Road Block?
The best “Amazing Race style” Cycle-a-thon event ever! Teams of 5 will pool their miles ridden on a stationary bike to reach a total distance of 50 miles. Each team member will cover different distances according to their ability. But it’s not about the riding, it’s about the fun of the roadblocks encountered after every 10 miles traveled by the team. Road Blocks will be “Amazing Race” style challenges including music, trivia, memory, coordination games etc. When a challenge is completed, the team rides again. The team will have one hour to complete the event. The event will be hosted at YMCA Annual Sponsor sites throughout our community. The winning team will be determined by total points achieved. No participation medals for this event, you have to win to get the glory! But you can have the fun and excitement just by entering!
