The point of the Bicycle Photo Tag is to reproduce a similar photo of an object or place that can be found in many different locations around the world. Much like a scavenger hunt, examples include specific street signs, a railway crossing with train, yourself at a toll booth with reciept, etc.... Get creative

Rules are easy...

1. Find a SIMILAR (ie; Not The Same, Different) tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). Take the tag to a new location, get the photo and post it here.
2. Upon posting your new tag, the tagger is responsible for specifying what it is in the photo that must be reproduced. Be specific, but not so specific that no one else will be able to play because we couldn't find another pink school bus.
* Try to place the tags in interesting locations, objects or places that could probably be found in at least the majority of the planet.
3. Tag must be: Common amongst all human habitation. Dirt is ok, but remember most of us are on street bikes. We don't want to exclude those who don't like to get dirty (wimps).
4. The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose (bruced).
5. One tag at a time within thread. File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.
6. No whining There are plenty of folks here that will help you understand the rules
7. The holder of the tag determines if the tag has been duplicated and acknowledges it by posting on the thread. (Surrendering the Tag)
8. No Pre-Arranged Tag Handoffs / Linear Tag sequence
9. Last but not least, should the tag be soo ridiculous that no one is able to reproduce it, it can be voted down if a majority of the active participants feel necessary.



Remember, the point of this is not to win the game, or get a better picture than the guy who just "bruced" you, the point is the ride. On that note, if someone tags a post office. Rather than get out and ride a block to my local post office, I might ride an hour or so, out to the historic post office a few neighborhoods over.... Make it interesting.

So the first tag is your bike in front of a house with Xmas lights

OK - Lots waiting for me when I get home, and I don't want to hold up the game.

New tag is a bike and a computer (but not bike-computer, that would be too easy for many):

It's an original Mac which came stock with 512K of RAM. As I recall I eventually paid $500 or so to have the RAM upgraded to 2 MB. You know, to make it more state of the art.

Awesome throw back! Is that an original Mac or a Mac Plus? 1980s FTW. Plus, it works! Amazing stuff.

Old Tag: your bike with something French

This is a scooter battery charging/swapping station produced by Matra, a French company that produces electric scooters and bicycles. Also that is my Schwinn, looking so proud from its fresh wash and new front rack. 

New tag TBD...

Matra! I didn't know they made stuff like that, but it shouldn't suprise me. THey are also a major aerospace contractor, and also used to make cars (they developed the Espace, the first minivan...)

TK, very nice!

New tag?

New Tag: The best smell on your ride.

If I took someone on a tour of Chicago, this would definitely be a destination. It always makes climbing that little hill more fun. If you haven't experienced it, go there now. Mmmmmmmm....

GAME ON

Old Tag: The best smell on my ride. D'Amato's Bakery-IMHO the scent of fresh baked bread beats out the sometimes overwhelming aroma of Blommer chocolate any day.

New Tag: pending...

New Tag: Your Bike with heinous public art.

Old tag:  Since heinous is objective, I found public art.  You be the judge:

New tag:  ...pending....I have to snap it on my way home from work tonight....
