What is Clue Ride?

Clue Ride started as a family game played around the house before the kids learned how to ride bikes. We would hide clues behind pictures, under the rug, or on page 17 of a favorite book. Each clue, when solved, would lead to the next clue taking the player on a path that was both new and familiar.

After everyone was riding bikes, our family pedaled Clue Ride into the surrounding neighborhoods. The paths around town followed bicycle routes both new and familiar, and brought us to many of the destinations that have captured the fancy of Atlanta’s cycling community: the markets, ice cream shops, green spaces, and scenic views that have been opened up by the BeltLine, cycle tracks and trails, and even the quiet neighborhood streets. Each destination contains a puzzle that leads you to the next surprise.

And now, the game is opening up for you to play — and we hope fall in love.

As the network of destinations, puzzles and clues spreads across Atlanta, we’re making trial runs on selected courses. You can be part of those trial runs — and also help build the courses. Contact outreach@clueride.com if you’d like to be part of bringing Clue Ride to Atlanta.
