The Solar Bear Challenge ended just a few weeks ago on February 14th. I participated after RC62 let me know about it. It was the “sister” challenge to the Polar Bear Challenge (PBC) for those who didn’t live in the right climate to ride below freezing (or didn’t want to).
The basic premise was to find letters that spelled the words “Solar Bear” on street signs and then run around the sign chanting “solar bear”. It was all very silly, and I found it surprisingly fun.
I made four videos for the letters S-O-L-A. You can see them here:

Because I was also participating in the PBC, I wasn’t eligible for the fabulous prize drawing at the end. The drawing was done on video, and was entertaining. Great job Rob! The results from the others are here: http://www.solarbear.rc62.net/page2/page2.html
I was surprised when a few days ago RC62 contacted me to get my mailing address. He said he had a few “extras” and wanted to send them out to the other participants. This little guy arrived on Saturday:
He came with a little card seen above. This was on the back:
Thanks again Rob! It was a fun challenge. I hope you run it again (or something similar) next year.
PS: PBC wrap-up coming soon.
