在臺灣的新年來臨，很多臺灣人有很多的壓力來自於必須提供一個豐富的餐給他們的家人. 很多家庭在這個時間會很開心，因為可以出去買很多吃的東西給大家.這種事情對大部分的家庭很容易，但是，對於某些家庭沒有那麼容易.他們在新年沒有能力可以採買一些生活用品.Noob bikes的比賽是基於一個想法，這個想法是在於幫忙沒有能力採買生活用品的人. 這個比賽開放每一個想要幫忙這些家庭的人.我們會在忠孝Sogo集合，然後，會發放必須採買的食物清單.
With Chinese New Year coming up, there is a lot of stress on Taiwanese families to provide a big meal for their family. Many families rejoice around this time of the year because they can go out and buy food for everyone to eat. This might be the case for most families, but some families are not as well off. They cannot afford to buy the necessities for Chinese New Year. Noob Bike is a race for people who do not have the means to have a big meal for Chinese New Year. The Noob Bike race is built on the idea of giving to those in need. The race is open to anyone who is willing to help those families. We will meet at Zhongxiao Sogo and will be given a grocery list. You must then go shopping.
- why noob bike? -
在2012，臺北市政府介紹Ubike. 一個新的、便宜的城市交通運輸工具. 可以很容易在城市的周圍裡，看到Ubike被使用. 一個新的簡易交通工具的型態，容易被大眾的人所接受. 這些人可能一年之中很少騎腳踏車，還有，他們之前沒有在路上騎腳踏車的經驗.這些人很少會知道他們在做什麼、或是他們處在危險中. 這些是叫做：Noobs - 初學者. 而Ubike 是一個為了初學者設計的腳踏車.
In 2012 the Taipei City government introduced the Ubike, a new mode of cheap city transportation. Ubikes quickly took off and could be seen all around the city. It gave “normal people” a new mode of easily accessible transportation. These people often haven’t ridden a bike in years and have no prior experience to riding bikes on the road thus are called noobs (a beginner). The ubike is the pinnacle of bikes used just for transportation. The ubike is a bike for noobs.
In 2017 Obikes came out, so you can now race with Obikes.
- rules -
Noob bike 會使用點數的制度去決定比賽的贏家. 舉例來說，你可以當最快完成的人.但是，沒有最多的點數. 所以，你不是這場比賽的贏家. 每個參賽者在抵達終點前，必須確定完成他們食物清單.
Noob Bike will be using a point system to determine the winner of the race. For instance, you could be the fastest person to finish, but not have the most points – so you are not the winner of the race. All participates must make sure to complete most of their grocery list before going to the finish line.
Additional points will be rewarded for:
Wearing a helmet +10 points
Dressing up +10 points (Wear something snazzy!)
只有一小時完成整個比賽. 誰把最多物品帶回來，加總點數. 最高者，是贏家.
每個人食物清單會有一樣的物品. 例如： 你可能必須在三民的家樂福買麵. 所以，你的清單會寫三民路的家樂福-麵 25元 值10點. 你必須要去三民家樂福買25元的麵和附帶發票. 你不可以跟其他朋友買.發票必須跟麵一起. 如果你遺失發票，那個物品就無法計算.
There is a onehour window to complete the entirety of the race. The one who returns with the most items that add up to the highest point value first, wins.
How does shopping work? Everyone’s grocery list has the same items. For example, you might have to buy noodles at Sanmin Road Carrefour. So your list will say Sanmin Road Carrefour- Noodles 25NT worth 10 Points. You must then go to Sanmin Road Carrefour and buy noodles for 25NT and bring a receipt for the item. You cannot buy for other friends. The receipt must stay with the noodles. If you lose the receipt, the item does not count. The noodles 10 points will be added to the rest of your points once you finish shopping and go to the finish line.
- Fake stores -
Noob Bike 將會有一些假的店是Kadacha在運作的. 這些物品在店裡是便宜的，但是，只有少許的數量. 這些店只有開短暫的時間. 舉例來說： Kadacha 的店只開10分鐘. 10分鐘以後，才會再開. 例如： 店開的時間從晚上8:00-8:10. 然後，關起來. 然後，8:20-8-30才會再開. 資訊只會在當天發放假的店-地點、時間.
Noob Bike will also have a couple fake stores that Kadacha will run. The items at these stores are free but are only limited to a certain amount. These stores are also only opened for a short period of time. For example one Kadacha store might be open for 10 minutes before closing again for 10 minutes. For example, store opens from 8:00PM-8:10 then is closed. The store reopens at 8:20-8:30. Information regarding the location and times of the store will be given out at the day of the race.
