Quests

(If you're just starting, read how to sign up first.)

All quests involve you taking a picture with your phone, and giving it a clever title.  What makes ParTour fun and useful to the community is the quests.  

Pick One:

QUEST: Build to South LA
KEYWORD: #south

Should the next CicLAvia include South LA?  Your quest is to help people slow down by interviewing them about why CicLAvia should connect to South LA.  Take their picture and send it in with one quote.  We will give awards for “best statement.” Alternatively, you can take a picture of your favorite observation along the south spur.

You must include the quest keyword for your submission to count!
QUEST: Crossings of CicLAvia
KEYWORD: #cross

Your quest is to tell the story of CicLAvia through its intersections.  Your images will appear on a special animated map of CicLAvia with fly-by 3d animation.  Your challenge is to make each picture as different as possible, so that we tell very different stories of people and Los Angeles with each intersection.  To qualify, each submission must include the location using loc:, like “loc:Vermont at 7th”

You must include the quest keyword AND the location for your submission to count!
QUEST: LA Bike Visions
KEYWORD: #bike

Your quest is to capture the best images of a bike future for Los Angeles.  Your posts will each be an argument for why bikes are a good thing.  You can use images and text, but each submission must include the keyword #bike.  We will give awards for the top three “most compelling” arguments for bikes in LA.

Experimental Quests
If you want, you can try one of these quests instead, or even combine them by using more than one quest keyword.  

QUEST: Hide and Seek for LA History
KEYWORD: #history

Your quest is to help people slow down by planting clues for them about social justice issues hidden within CicLAvia.  Each clue is a picture you take, plus a hint like a title or address.  We will give awards for “best #history clues” for social justice issues.
Bonus if you can find others’ clues and provide evidence that you were there in a post with the tag #found.

QUEST: Reveal the Hidden Gems
KEYWORD: #gem

Your quest is to help CicLAvia participants find overlooked gems.  To do this, you will have to ask questions of locals -- talk to shop keepers, residents, or people that come to the neighborhood frequently.  Ask them to share a “community asset” that outsiders should learn about.  This asset can be person, a news source, or even an art piece.  Get a picture of the person, the asset, or something to symbolize the asset.  We will give awards for some of the “best gems” for social justice issues.  To qualify, each submission must include the tag #gem.

QUEST: Colors of Bike Love
KEYWORD: #color

Why love bike transit?  Collect three pictures that show why bike and public transit matters to Los Angeles.  Each picture must feature a different color from a Metro Rail line.  (The colors are blue, red, green, gold, and purple.)  We will give awards for some of the best “three color collections” for social justice issues.  To qualify, you must have three submissions that each name a rail line color, and include the #color keyword.
