A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Tuesday, August 2nd

Geek Culture Internet

As we’ve reported before, our good friends over at Google are starting up a daily puzzle challenge. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. And much to our enjoyment, they’ve decided to share the puzzles with us at GeekDad (hmm… Google a Day? GD? GeekDad?), so each morning at 12:01am ET you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here. SPOILER WARNING: As a test, we’re going to leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS! Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience. And now, without further ado, we give you… TODAY’S PUZZLE:

If Paul Revere had ridden a bike to Lexington on today’s bike paths (including the Minuteman Commuter Bikeway), about how many minutes would his famous ride have taken from his starting point?


Search [1590 English colony] to find it was the Roanoke colony. Read on to find Sir Walter Raleigh established the colony. Search [Raleigh U.S. state capital] to find it is the capital of North Carolina. Search [state bird North Carolina] to find it is the cardinal.
