behind calvalry cemetery.
we’re supposed to be saying where these are when we find them, right?
and lyle, that dog was a sweetie.
also, you’d have to make quite an effort to be less close to god than bikefind, but I know what you meant.
Damn, I should have know where that is. I used to live near there and ride right past there a couple times a week while doing laps on Flowers and Tesla.
“This might shock you”=Tesla. I love it. Great clues Lyle.
less than one mile from the last tag as the crow flies.
you might feel like you’ve been here before, but you’d have it backwards.
@jason: thanks for starting this!
So I happened to be home and online and used to walk by the back of that (yellow) building on a daily basis.
I will admit I didn’t climb the hill in the picture, I went up the side.
I’ll do one this evening.
no problem not climbing the hill. (I figure it’s my job to call that, since I placed the tag.) I didn’t climb up greenfield/bigelow to get dwillen’s tag, but I live up here and figure I’ve done that climb enough times to get home. I did hoosac though. Can’t get enough of that street – I always feel like there’s no way I’m not gonna die or make an idiot of myself when I get to that steeper part near the end. Always exciting to get to the top without either happening. (although the “not looking like an idiot” part is just my perspective. others may well differ.)
I actually tried, but this lady pulled up next to me asking for directions juuust as I started. So I got off, failed to give helpful directions, walked, and then went the other way instead.
Running up all the Greenfield hills is challenging enough for me. Less death and looking like an idiot when gravity wins on 2 feet compared to 2 wheels, at least for me.
It just so happens I already had a bike ride planned tonight for the next tag.
I suspect a subset of this forum will recognize this rather quickly. Watch out for beavers!
Can you provide another clue? Is that Washington’s landing?
@quizbot and bikefind, thanks, I have been playing the tag-o-rama around the state of PA on Motorcycles for a while now and I thought it would be pretty fun on bicycles. It looks like you guys agree.
This was surprisingly difficult. My first guess was the TRRA on Washington’s Landing, so I hurried down there, couldn’t find it, rode all over the island, asked a whole bunch of walkers if they had any clue, and the, finally, went back and looked harder.
The people who should serve us treat our lives as worth scarcely more than a pile of dog shit. How can we get them into court before our public roads become slaughterhouses?
wow, that’s a really easy one… now do i feel like going over there…?
Yeah, but it seemed apropos. And easier than climbing Mt Washington this morning.
oi, I have one packed weekend where I can’t get online and this explodes. I might have to shed my luddite tendencies just to figure out how to play properly, because I’ll never catch up at this point!
I know I don’t have to do them all… But most are places that I look at and think “Hey, I know where that is, that’d be fun to bike to!” or “That’s on my way to X, I should go there.” And if I don’t know it, that makes me want to go even more. Thus my list of places to go on a bike gets longer every time someone lays down a new tag. It’s a personal problem I’ll continue to battle on my own
Some of these I recognize, some not, this blue thingy, I’m pretty sure is emerald now. but I’m not going to get to it.
…edit… took a quick look at google satellite images … totally misremembering. No, don’t go emerald.
@church – that’s about an 8 minute ride for you. Giddyup!
Wondering about placements for tags… are we sticking to city limits proper? A 10 or 15 km radius centered on the point could make things pretty interesting.
8 minutes huh? We’ll see if I can do it in double or triple that time on the fixed commuter.
I’ve been waiting for this one. It’s on the friggin’ bike map for pete’s sake…
@quizbot: I was thinking about trying to keep it in or around city limits. I think if it gets too far out there it might sit. If you have a good one that you think people will go for, then throw it out there.
Crap! I can ALMOST get to that one. But my bike is four blocks in the other direction!
