Yippee! It’s Bike First Friday with a new funner finish location, Cafe Amsterdam at 530 E Benson (Metro Music and Books Mall) for beer!
BCA’s July Bike First Friday theme isAnchorage’s 1% for Art.
For thirty years the 1% for Art Program of the Alska State Council on the Arts and the Anchorage Municipality has celebrated artists and the visual environment by installing permanent artwork throughout the state and in the city of Anchorage.
Most all artwork is selected by a committee of community members dedicated to making Anchorage a better place to live by enhancing its urban landscape. All the artwork is situated in everyday locations frequented by visitors and residents alike. You will visit artwork you might have previously missed that was right before your eyes.
Celebrate the beginning of the weekend, breath some fresh air while pumping your quads, and chase down scavenger hunt questions with your friends/family/kids.
Addresses for 1% for Art installations are here (click to print or save), and the map is here (again, click to print or save). Questions for the scavenger hunt can be found at bottom of this post. Click on the questions to see or print the two page version.
Pick a meet up location with your friends at one of the locations on the scavenger hunt. Plan your attack; concentrate downtown, or pedal to Kincaid to really stretch your legs.
No matter where you start, meet up at our new finish location Cafe Amsterdam 8:30pm to finish and quibble about the answers to the scavenger hunt. BCA’s free spanking bike valet will be set up, so you can relax and enjoy your delicious beer and rowdy friends. Participation prizes to be given out by your good friends from BCA at Cafe Amsterdam at 9:00 pm.
