So now a few of you thought it may be worth a go, to see if this works or not, here is the first round. Going to be very similar, but perhaps slightly altered rules (in bold) Idea of this one though, is a bit of fun and extra motivation to get out on your bike. Suggestions to rule changes welcome.

Warning, challenge may be of benefit to your health.

Take a picture of you bicycle with the object or place named by the previous winner, and then set the next challenge.

Poll added for 10 days to decide whether the first to 10 is the winner, or the most pictures once 30 have been completed.

Rules:
1. Your have to have ridden the bike to the destination.
2. Picture has to be taken after challenge is made. Challenge must be met by a single picture. You can post more pictures to make something clearer.
3. Challenge is good for one week. If nobody gets it by then, please select a different challenge.
4. Challenges must be legal and Safe For Work.
5. If you comment rather than post an entry, then please repeat the current challenge at the end of your comment, especially if you start a new page.
6. No repeat challenges within this thread. You can repeat challenges from previous rounds.
7. Only one person can win each challenge and set the next one. Challenge setter to resolve any disputes, or failing that, three consecutive Thumbs Ups from other members wins it.
8. Challenges cannot be won by the person setting the challenge.
9. If you want to show a late entry after a challenge has been won, then please only post a link to the picture. Do not actually show your image directly as it's confusing.
10. Round ends after 50 or 10 challenges depending on the poll vote?
11. Lets try and keep challenges doable for most riders. Obviously some challenges may be more geared towards the off road bikes, or towards the roadies. That's fine, but if we find that one challenge is difficult for one style of bike, try to make the next challenge a more inclusive one before a specialised one again.

Winner of the round copies this post and creates the next round challenge thread and post with the poll. And second post in the new thread with the first challenge for the new round.

Participants should reward challenge winning photos with Karma

The goal is to encourage people to ride out, so please make challenges clear and achievable by most members.
Challenges that require other people or props or that can be satisfied by taking a picture of your bike in the driveway or garage are generally frowned upon.
Dangerous or practically impossible challenges should not be set.

Good Luck and have fun Smile

First challenge will be set by the first person to post. GO...

Dammit! I was on my bicycle, on an unpaved bridleway with grass/mud and plenty of trees just last night! See attached - not an entry as was taken before the challenge was set but coincidentally I stopped to take pics which I never normally do.

OK, I'll bite.

This was taken after I'd ridden up the bloody the thing. Four times now, and I always regret it about 10% of the way up. At some point I'll learn.

Next challenge: Your bike and an estuary or river.

Same - I rode my bicycle over the River Thames the day this challenge was set, but didn't check BCF until I got home.

that's a bicycle shop, a shop whose business is wholly or almost wholly about selling and mending bicycles, not a Halfords or a Tesco or an Argos, or a sports shop that might also sell a few bikes etc...

I have my bicycle at work today and will be riding it home tonight. Sadly the bike shop I would naturally ride past closed a few weeks ago, although there is one I could detour to. I'll see how I feel about the extra miles later - watch this space.

Easy for me, I can just see National Cycle Route 51 from my window. Will give others a chance for a couple of days.
