2018 UK Challenge 100 - "PICS ONLY"

#1 Post by Grumpy Old Git » Fri Dec 08, 2017 11:20 am

The challenge is to visit Places throughout mainland UK in 2018 and photograph your bike with your Challenge number at the location (Get your unique number here ) viewtopic.php?f=12&t=65608


The places are divided into 10 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 AND title the Tag (so we know what you are claiming).

You keep your total score on your Profile (you keep your own score) We will be watching! [The maximum possible score is 1,650}

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.

Here is a google maps link with all the places on. Click on the tag and it will tell you what the place is, or have a look on the left side there is a list of all the places to visit.

Some of the roads on the IOW are 'epic' - However, the ferry crossing was a bit 'iffy' with no decent tie-down for the bike.
