CYCULT

Brooklyn; Starting location tbA

Join the cycult

A nocturnal bike ride scavenger hunt through the New York underworld.

If you’ve dreamed of starting a cult, this is your chance. Assemble your friends into a themed cult, secure bikes for your followers, and on June 8th put your faith to the test. 

This will be a competitive scavenger hunt where your cult will venture to a series of secret Brooklyn locations where you will perform rites & ritualistic challenges. You’ll earn points during these for your acts of devotion and receive bonus points by finding & doing things from the ordained scavenger list. 

The winning cult proves that they are the truest believers (as measured in points.) These Chosen will receive the Cycultic Mysteries – an ancient tome in which they will etch their beliefs into the annals of time. 

FAQs

☯ IS THIS A RACE? ☯

No. Speed plays no role in the scoring and coming in first wins you nothing but disdain.

 

🚲 WHAT KIND OF VEHICLE CAN I USE? 🚲

If it has no more than 2 wheels you can use it – ideally a bike (Citi bikes are fine).

 

✨ HOW BIG IS A CULT TEAM? ✨

At least two people. But two would be a pretty sad cult. Up to six would be a rad cult. More than six people and you may as well create a power struggle, develop a rift and split into two teams because competition and drama is super fun.

 

👁️ WHAT DO I WEAR? 👁️

Whatever your cult beliefs dictate! All black hoods, pure white robes, cardigans, tin foil hats – just commit to your faith and you’ll be rewarded (with points). 

 

🏆 ARE THERE GONNA BE PRIZES? 🏆

Oh fuck yes. The Grand Prize is an artifact of great power, the “Cycultic Mysteries”. The cult that rises above all will receive these teachings that grant dominion over minds!

 

⌛ HOW LONG WILL THIS TAKE? ⌛

That really depends on you but, we should be done by around 230am.

 

💫 HOW FAR WILL WE GO? 💫

The entire route is about 10 miles, depending on the paths you take between checkpoints.

 

🏋🏽 WHAT KIND OF CHECKPOINTS/CHALLENGES WILL THERE BE? 🏋🏽

Fun ones where you do fun stuff. Some will test your intelligence, others your strength, and still others your willingness to do ridiculous, ignorant things.

 

🧿 SO, THE CHECKPOINTS ARE GONNA BE BARS LIKE AT IDIOTAROD? 🧿

FUCK NO! This isn’t on some Heaven’s Gate mass suicide cult shit. We DO NOT condone drunk or buzzed driving. If you get your drink on at the finish line afterparty we trust you and your cult to leave your vehicles safely until the next day, or establish designated drivers.

 

🏁 WHERE DOES IT START? 🏁

A park in Brooklyn. No, not that one. We’ll announce it the day before the rally.


🏁 WHERE DOES IT END? 🏁

Gemini & Scorpio. 267 Douglass St, 3rd Floor

 

💸 HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? 💸

We’re asking $10 suggested donation per rider. Citibike costs $19 for a day, but be sure to dock every 30 minutes to avoid surcharges. We’ve designed the route to account for this.

 

🔮 WHYYYYYY? 🔮

The heavens and the lands below dictate that we do this. It isn’t our choice. We are mere messengers.
