Thinking of tagging a few tomorrow as I have an essential journey and can see no reason not to pick a few up enroute !

What do you think?

I’ve spent the last few days planning my long way down route to Cornwall plus a day riding round then a day back bagging as many tags as I can 👍

Can’t wait to be let off the leash ( weather providing of course )

Hello

Just got back from my first ride now lockdown has been partially lifted.

The owner pf the Prospect Garden Tea Room told me it was closed 2 years ago when he retired. He let me take a picture close up but the rest of you will have to settle for a distance shot from the bottom of the drive.

Magic Dragon brewing has changed its name to Plassey Brewery but the gaffer dug out an old sign for me to photograph.

 

Stay safe everyone

top stuff Mike, I'll change the brewery name and see if there's a nearby landmark for the tea room alternative!

Sorry gang, I’ve not made any journeys that are not essential (definition of essential includes going to buy things rather than order online sometimes) since the pandemic started. I really hoped this year I might but so far it has not been.

      Well 2020 a bit pants in a lot of ways but some of you still did a fine job going and finding tags! 
      There will be  2021 version hurray! 
       
      So for those who don't know... how does this thing work?
      First job: Sign up here - pick a unique number of 3 digits or less, first come first served. Same number, different number, I don't care. Post below with your request and you will get added to this post.
      The list of awesome will be posted up on the evening of the 31st but entries will not be accepted before the 1st.
       
      You will be required to take a picture of you in bike gear / your bike with your number visible in front of the location and post in the relevant picture thread (THIS DOESN'T EXIST JUST YET...) to score points. 
      You will get 10 points per picture, Rennie was sad about the bonus point system and to be fair I am so flakey he will probably end up doing stuff so it's a straight 10 points per picture no completion bonuses but I will probably throw some more tags in to make up for it.
       
      As before if you can name your pictures with the tag reference that makes my Rennie's life easier (most of you did as you are more organised than me, failure to do so will result in angry mods).
      Like a Christmas miracle the map link will appear after dark on the 31st December.
      As usual there will be a discussion thread for you to argue with me in 
      And a seperare picture thread will also appear soon.
       
      As usual no prizes for the most points other than being smug on the internet and having a lot of fun out there on your bikes which is what it's all about! 
       
      Numbers:
      Grumpy Old Git - 1
      Charlie_580 - 3
      Stu - 5
      JRH - 9
      Fullscreenaging-10

      So @mike_smith got pretty much all of the tags last year which meant I couldn't be lazy and just repost them so we have ALL NEW TAGS [APPLAUSE]
       
      Remind me what I need to do…..
      1. Go to this thread and grab yourself a unique number: 
      2. Check the map here to find out where you need to go: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=1zkNydBJldc62Yqhrm1poCQvvT6tuuqKP&usp=sharing
      Alt link: https://www.google.com/maps/@54.3947953,-7.2577555,6z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!6m1!1s1zkNydBJldc62Yqhrm1poCQvvT6tuuqKP
       
      3. Take a picture of you or your bike outside the location with your number in sight
      4. Post that picture in this thread
      5. Update your point total (found in your profile). @rennie will shout at you repeatedly if you do not do this. 
      6. Have fun!
       
      General tags. This year there are FIFTEEN tags per mainland UK region PLUS bonus rounds in the Isle of Man and Northern Ireland PLUS AS HE WAS MOANING SPECIAL PINK FIFE TAGS FOR @husoi (don't say I never do anything for you lot)
       
      This year it's 10 points per tag as usual with the 50 point bonus for completed regions. To make people's life easier if I flake out there will be a magic spreadsheet that will add stuff up 💫
       
      So as the regular players will know we have a bonus round, this year whilst racking my brain for some things that are everywhere I came up with... PETROL STATIONS! We all have to fill up so some of these should be easy! You also don't have to fill up there obviously I have been on the internet long enough to know people have very strong feelings with certain fuel brands. Anyway the list as follows:
      1. BP
      2. Shell
      3. Esso
      4. Jet
      5. Asda
      6. Tesco
      7. Morrisons
      8. Texaco
      9. Sainsburys
      10 Applegreen OR Harvest Energy
       
      Pub Round - As usual, list of 10 pubs, get a pub with one of the below names get 10 points, get all 10 get 50 points bonus.
      We've gone through most of the common names so they are getting a bit weird, I will be nice-ish in terms of flexibility on the names. If in doubt ask on the discussion thread. 
       
      Seven Stars    
      Phoenix    
      Halfway House    
      Unicorn    
      Miners Arms    
      Duke of Wellington    
      Pheasant    
      Spread Eagle    
      Bird In Hand    
      Woodman    
      Junction    
      Five Bells
      Edit: I just noticed there are 12... so all 12 for the bonus! 
       
      As always this thread is for PICTURES ONLY. If you want to moan.. I mean.. discuss the challenge in any way please go here:  
       
       
      Will Hoggfather get the first tag of the year again? Let’s find out….. GO GO GO!!!
