Far more accessible than the winter and summer Olympic Biathlons, an Urban Biathlon is riding a bicycle 10 miles, stopping at a batting cage for 20 pitches, and then repeating 4 times, for a total 50 mile ride and possible 100 hits. Lowest time and highest number of hits wins.
My friends and I got drunk on Saturday afternoon and invented the urban biathlon, biking dangerously through traffic, and then hitting things at the local baseball batting cage. I ended up finishing in 3 hours with 70 hits, but my friend Anne won with 2 hours 50 minutes and 71 hits. Suck!
