The Chainlink

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

And then you post a tag that matches it, with the next tag that has to be matched.

So here is the matching photo:

House with Xmas lights

And the next tag is ... your bike with a Lion.

So go find a Lion and take a picture with your bike.

the only lion i know of is at the park in Northbrook that doubles as a drinking foundtain.  Of wait... I just thought of other lions.  Who is at the art institute right now?

or at lincoln park zoo?  or brookfield zoo out west, I think there is a Chinese lion statue in Chinatown.  Maybe even an old Harris bank logo is still around.

Do you and Julie also tell people the surprise ending of movies while you're exiting and patrons are waiting to go in?

If you get the tag do you automatically post the next tag with your photo or should you wait for the tag to be surrendered?

you can put the next tag right on your matching tag.  no need to wait....unless Kevin is going to complain about that too.

I'm merely trying to preserve the integrity of the game. I try to apply my complaints on a case by case basis. Carry on.

How do we decide who is going to go to the designated place to get the picture?

same person that matches the first tag creates the next one. First one to post it - gets it.

No one can find a Lion?

My bike with a lion:

My bike at a bank:

good Tag Kevin.  So now someone has to find a bank to grab the tag.  Shouldn't be too hard.
