Hello there. At the launch of the King of Two Wheels bike challenge, we got together with the contestants to toast in bubbly and review the following game rules.
King of Two Wheels
The SVA Ixd Community Bike Challenge
Welcome. You are competing to become the King of Two Wheels of the SVA IxD studio. Prepare to bike a lot and to be bet upon by your studio mates. The final winner will be honored on the studio kitchen Wall of Fame, as well as be celebrated along with the other contestants at the King of Two Wheels finale party. The winner will also be treated to a complimentary, candle-lit, crock-pot dinner following the competition.
OBJECT OF THE GAME
Have the least amount of thread on your spool at the end of the game.
HOW TO WIN
There are two ways to dwindle your thread—(1) map your rides with your thread or (2) earn rewards to cut off thread through challenges.
Map rides: For every mile you take on your bike throughout the duration of the game, map it. Be as specific as possible with your route. You are welcome to use digital tracking apps to assist with this. And it may even help you score extra points later in the game.
Earn rewards: You get rewards by doing challenges. Challenges will involve a bike-related activity and a report (or confession) about your experience.
Challenges spur you to try new things and to encourage you to reveal your biking stories and strategies. Trying new things will happen on the streets of New York; Revealing biking stories and strategies will happen in the ‘King of Two Wheels’ confession booth.
There will be daily winners and a final winner – the SVA IxD Bike King. For each challenge completed, there will be rewards in form of inches of thread cut of your spool. The scoring and rewards of challenges differ based on its nature. Some daily challenges are judged by the quality of your confession. Challenge winners are honored by day on the studio Wall of Fame.
First and foremost, we want you to have fun! Our second want is to capture your insights as New York bikers. The confession is a place for you to record your thoughts based on some questions we put on the wall. Talk to the camera in the booth as you would with your nice game administrators. Talk about what you encounter while biking, your strategies for finding your way on a bike in NYC, and what motivates you to get your bottom on the bike seat.
This game operates on trust. Yes, trust. Please be honest about your miles. And please keep your nose to yourself in the confession booth.
The duration of the game is one week. It starts Tuesday Oct 18th and lasts until Tuesday Oct 25th at 1:00PM. Your two-wheel enthusiasm should last forever.
Please be safe out there on the road. We are not liable for any incidents on the road.
May the best rider win!
