Photo Challenge Overview
The Cincy Riders photo challenge encourages us to get out and ride areas of the tri-state we may not have ridden before. When can you join? NOW! It doesn't matter if there's 1 month or 11 left in the year!
Game play takes place in, and is managed through, the Photo Challenge channel of the Cincy Riders Discord: discord.cincyriders.com
How To Play (Sample Order)
- Rider A posts a photo with identifiable landmarks. (For this example, lets say Fountain Square.)
Others try to determine the location (by themselves) using clues the from the photo.
- Rider B and Rider C figure out the location & start riding to Fountain Square.
Rider C takes a picture of their motorcycle at Fountain Square (similar to Rider A's from step 1) and immediately posts it to the Photo Challenge Discord channel, before Rider B has the chance to.
- This reserves the point for Rider C, but it hasn't scored yet. Keep reading!
Within 36 hours, Rider C restarts Step 1 by riding to a new location and posting a photo of their motorcycle with identifiable landmarks to Discord.
- Rider C has now completed the flow and scored the point.
- Continue to step 2 above.
Info & Clarifications
Play is sequential. The person who posts a photo from the active spot to the Discord channel first reserves the point.
- Tip: once you take a photo at the active spot, post immediately! If another rider gets there an hour later, but posts their photo before you, the point is reserved as theirs!
Reserved points aren't scored until the rider posts the next location (36 hour grace period).
- If 36 hours lapse with no new photo, the point is no longer reserved and the prior spot is up for grabs again.
- The person with the most points at the end of the season/year wins.
Rules & Specifics
- Locations should be within a ~20 mile (crow flies, not driving) general radius of Fountain Square to keep the game moving. The goal is to easy access for everyone via a basic 275 loop + some wiggle room. A rough map example is below.
- Locations & photos should be identifiable (memorial displays, statues, buildings, signs, art/graffiti, overlooks, etc). Be creative and unique. Places on the side of the road with a random house or your favorite Waffle House don't count.
- You have to post a picture of your bike at the location. An identifiable unique feature (like your glove on the bike) is encouraged to ensure current pictures.
- No discussion or attempts in Discord for a couple days? Give a hint and keep the game from stalling out. Be sure to wait a day or two, and don't ruin it by giving it away.
- Participation is open to all bike styles, so no pictures requiring trespassing, off road riding or locations with limited accessibility.
Group ride? Reserve & claim group points:
- Everyone’s bike must be in both the original spot and new spot photos to get the point.
- Points are added to each riders individual totals.
- The rider(s) who submitted the current challenge cannot participate in the discovery of that same challenge.
