Need a reason to ride? Lets play....

..... photo tag

Rules are simply:
  1. Find the last posted tag, take a picture of your bike in front of it, and post it with the location where the last tag was (Note: The tag must be clearly visible in the picture you take). Then post the next tag (there can be a time gap of a couple of days). Only the first person posting can post the next tag.
  2. Tag needs to be less then 100 miles away from Cincinnati, OH (sorry iron butters)
  3. Tag needs to be accessible with any street legal bike (e.g. close to a paved road, no dirt, gravel, single track required to get there)
  4. Hints must be given to find the tag if it is not obvious (e.g. easlily googled)
Lets start, here is the first one:


Hints:
  • Road has the same digits as a large and famous passenger airplane from Boing (think big), but not in the same order
  • The tag is located between South of SR32 and North of SR125

Great idea, Joern. Keeping it close gives those of us with families and jobs a chance to get the tag.

It looks like a game the entire family can play--isn't that Joern's wife's bike in the foreground?

Sounds like a very cool game!

Clarification requested on Rule #1:
How long would a person be allowed to be "IT"? Does the last tag and next tag have to be in the same post or can it follow a day or two later?

Once you post the last tag as the first poster then you're IT. Of course you shouldn't wait weeks before posting the next one.

Sounds like an awesome game. I can see lots of people finding the tag, but missing the boat by not getting it posted before someone else. Hehe...

Re: Need a reason to ride? Lets play....

I just saw it a few days ago, so I know where it is too. I'll race ya there. ;-)

Heheh, I'm half expecting to get there and see someone taking a picture of their bike. Then it'd be a race home.

Said it before. Will say it again. I thought it was funny that we got beat. As we were taking our photos, I made the comment about being "Paranoid" of every other bike that was riding in the area (and there were quite a few). On our return from the Vintage British Rally, my partner-in-crime thought we should proceed to our next tag so that we could have it ready to go. My gut was telling me that we might already be beat. Hehe...
