I was first exposed to what I call "slow rides" back when I was in graduate school at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, GA. Lauren and I would travel to Savannah on the weekends and we would always find at least one of the futuristic vehicles in the downtown river district. If you aren't familiar with this ride, it reminds you of a dozen bicycles mixed with an extra large SUV. Participants sit on stool-like seats and pedal the vehicle while the guide steers and brakes at different stops along the way. Naturally, this type of tour is great for families, friends, co-workers, wedding parties, and other large groups.
The Chamber staff recently had the opportunity to participate in such an activity for a staff retreat courtesy of Steve Tishman with Limo Cycle Tours. As we approached the vehicle, Steve and his assistant explained that we would be working together to solve puzzles which would ultimately lead us to a missing ship captain. We began the event at the Exploration Tower where we each selected a pirate name and then boarded for the tour, which lasted about 2 hours. Along the way, we stopped at locations around the Port where we completed puzzles to reveal clues, which aided us in tracking down the Captain. While the puzzles were challenging, in the end we all worked together and the captain was saved. I would recommend this event to other groups looking for a fun and relaxing staff retreat.
