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

No way - I say it goes back to your bike at an outdoor beergarden/cafe. Let's "make" more people get refreshed outdoors by bike!

That is the DesPlains River Trail (DPRT at mile 28)

Hennepin Canal Trail, just west of visitors center.  Mile 21 I think.

New tag, your bike with animals.  These are sheep (with guard dog at fence).

Old tag, your bike with animals (a small pack of labrador retrievers).

new tag: your bike with bike share or rental bikes

That's a good tag!

Thanks J.A.W..  I wanted to work in a Divvy tag because of the anniversary.  I just re-upped my membership.  Hard to believe it has been a year.

Old Tag: Your (my) bike with bike share.

New Tag: Your bike at a bar where Dan Brown liked to sing karaoke (Hint: Apparently it was almost all of them, but this was Spyners):
