  • 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.

    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)

    1. Rider A posts a photo with identifiable landmarks. (For this example, lets say Fountain Square.)
    2. 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.
    3. 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!
    4. 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.
    5. 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 after you, 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 give easy access to everyone as 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.
    • If you like group rides, you can reserve & claim group points.
      • Everyone’s bike must be in both the the original spot and new spot photos to get the point.
      • Points are added to each riders individual totals.
    • Prior submitter cannot participate in the round immediately following theirs
      • Ex: In the Sample Order above, Rider A cannot accompany Rider B or C to the spot.
