2017 UK Challenge 100 - "PICS ONLY"

#1 Post by Grumpy Old Git » Fri Dec 23, 2016 8:44 am

The challenge is to visit Places throughout mainland UK in 2016 and photograph your bike with your Challenge number at the location (Get your unique number here )


The places are divided into 9 Groups and also 10 pubs. The pubs can be found locally or wherever you like.

You will gain 10 points for every Place you photograph and post, Plus a Bonus 50 points for every Group you complete (including the 'Pubs' group).

You can use more than one bike, pillions and rider can use the same bike.
For some pictures you will have to walk to the place, so take the picture of you in your bike gear with your number.

You post your Photos on this Thread.

Discuss anything in the discussion Thread. Here: https://themotorbikeforum.co.uk/viewtop ... 42#p970541

The Challenge will last for 12 months, Jan 1st - Dec 31st. You can join in at any time of the year and do as many or as few as you like.

It's just for fun to get you out on the bike. So please always keep this in mind.

I'm up and running. Not very nice out there, stopped raining now at least.
If I'm not called out again I'll have a look at where I can find the pub names locally.
