Riders must ride and pick up a token at both the South Summit and Brant Lake Lookout at The Bike Park (Map Below) Once they have both tokens they can return to The Hub and present them for a reward!*

In addition to the tokens, the Gnarly Gerbil itself will be hidden somewhere on the mountain. Clues to its whereabouts will be posted to the Brant Lake Canoe Race Instagram Stories starting at 1pm.
