IBactive Scavenger Hunt

July 3, 2020 @ 8:00 am - July 17, 2020 @ 5:00 pm


Explore Imperial Beach California, complete challenges and win prizes!


What is an Active Transportation Scavenger Hunt?

This is a semi-virtual event for active transportation users to explore their neighborhood and get to know their community. Using the Scavify app to track points and complete tasks, participants will ride, walk, skate, and roll around Imperial Beach visiting points of interest, shops, sharing photos, and completing mini challenges.

The more tasks you complete, the higher the chances you have of winning prizes.


When is the event?

The scavenger hunt starts on July 3rd and goes until July 17th. You have 15 days to complete as many of the challenges, tasks and quizzes as possible.

–>BONUS EVEN- Come down to Seacoast Drive and Donax Ave on July 3rd between 5pm and 9pm to sign up for the Scavenger Hunt and get some free swag items (lights, helmets, safety gear). Please respect the volunteers by wearing a mask and distancing yourself when you get your gear.

  • Search for “IBactive Scavenger Hunt”
  • The scavenger hunt will be active starting on July 3rd, so stay tuned!
  • Register on Love to Ride for bonus points and prizes!


What are the prizes?

There are heaps of awesome prizes from local businesses! The prize page is coming soon…

How does this support businesses and communities?

The purpose of this event is to encourage active transportation use and highlight businesses, art and culture!

Participants must use active transportation to explore the city. Because active transportation allows people to move slowly and parking is not a factor in their access, these people are generally more positive, and they are able to experience, and see more of what your area has to offer!

Products, gift certificates and services purchased from businesses in your area will be awarded as prizes to the scavenger hunt winners. We expect about 1000 people to participate, visiting your business district regularly during the 15-day event and discovering what makes Imperial Beach so special. REGISTER your business HERE!

Cities are safer when more people go with active transportation. This event encourages people reduce their local carbon footprint and live a more healthy life style.

What about COVID-19?

  • We recognize that during this global pandemic, many shops are closed, or struggling to stay open. Businesses will be able to choose their level of engagement.
  • Participants will be encouraged to abide by CDC guidelines.
  • Tasks and challenges will all be solo with limited person to person interaction.
  • Resources for biking during COVID-19 can be found here.
