  • I've been meaning to get bike tag started in Brum for ages. It's great fun and is a good reason to go for a quick pootle.

    The rules are simple - it's like a game of treasure hunt/tag.
    **
    Basic Rules:**

    1. A picture of a bike in an interesting location is posted and one clue is given.

    2. Another person must post a picture of their bike at the same location, and then post a second picture of their bike at a different location. Both photographs must be taken on the same day.

    3. If a location goes a week without a reply, the poster must giveaway a strong clue(s) to the location (eg. street name)

    4. The game continues.

    Additional Rules:

    • No reflecto porn
    • No blank or near blank walls
    • No hogging the game (wait two turns to tag again)
    • Locations must be freely accessible to the public
    • Old and new tags must have the same bicycle

    I'll have to start with an old picture of both my bikes because I can't find my camera lead:

    Clue: Find the new site of this EXYZTing container.

  • hahah i was waiting for someone to start this on the birmingham forum! game on!

  • Good! My friends are always dashing round London to win it, sometimes it gets really competitive and it's fun finding ones that are super hard. There's some awesome architecture/graff in Brum that will make for recognisable pics. Let's do it!

  • The race is on. Get out of the way, job, I have important cycling things to do! I believe I know where that is too. XD

  • Anyone found where it is yet? CLUE: not far from the previous site! Come on, I can't tag my own picture...

  • I have an inkling - we'll have to see how busy I am today though....

  • Ok, I think Jess cheated a bit by picking an old photo of an object thats now been moved and is behind an 8ft fence. Here it is though, its on that bit of carpark where Masshouse Circus used to be (behind this fence):

    This one is much easier, clue: its near the last one!

  • I was making it difficult, Birmingham is too small! Also I cannot see a container in your pic but I'll let you off.

    Indeed, the container is enclosed inside a compound, invisible from the road.

  • Use your initiative...jump! Well done.

  • Bump...you should all be able to get Neil's tag on the way to beers tonight! Let's have a little competitiveness in Birmingham. Jeez.

  • Damn I know where this is but havn't got my bike! I'm so having this tomorrow morning!

  • Good, I've been waiting for a new one!

  • This thread fell on its arse didn't it

  • dlb - reinforcing the reason I want to leave Birmingham one remark at a time.

    How about for a change you try and get something going then? You know I've done the film night, the themed ride, the bike jumble, actually making it to London on a bike twice as heavy as everyone elses...can't win 'em all.

  • If you made them easier more people might get involved. Just saying.

  • Period stone building with windows boarded up and pretty distinctive street art right by Masshouse Circus in the city centre. Not that hard is it? I've passed by at least twice this week and I know alot of other people will have been nearby too. So why don't you find it and make the next one reaaaaaallly easy for the lazy people?

  • I would, if only I weren't so damn lazy.

  • BANG!

    And if you can't find the location of the lower photo look closer there are loads of clues in there!

    MG either cash money or paypal the prize money to me!
