‘Tour De Tentacle’ Bike Quest

(10.30) The ‘Tour de Tentacle,’ a bike-based quest game inspired by the writing of H.P. Lovecraft, starts off and ends up, Sunday at the Arcade Providence. (From the Facebook event page.)

Inspired by the arcane writing of H.P. Lovecraft, this bike-based quest around the city of Providence will require you and your teammates to solve puzzles, fight (or help) monsters, and ultimately, to save the city from annihilation. Or if you’re feeling evil, you can open the portal to the tentacled horrors yourselves. The odyssey will take you to many of the city’s most historic sites, such as the Arcade, the Athenaeum, and the Columbus Theater.

The event begins at 2pm at the Arcade, culminating near the Industrial Trust Tower at dusk for a “dark cosmic reckoning.” There will be a public after-party from 4pm to 8pm at New Harvest Coffee & Spirits in The Arcade.

DASH Bicycle Shop is offering nearly half-off rentals, with velofix providing free basic bike repairs on-site. Tickets are $10 and include one free drink at the after-party.

Seen here: Detail from the 2016 Tour de Tentacle T-shirt, available to participants at the after-party for $15. In stock next week at Lovecraft Arts & Sciences for $20.

$10, tentacle bike quest, 2pm, Sunday, October 30, Arcade Providence, 65 Weybosset Street, (directions)
