What the hey, might as well do something a bit more interesting than my normal weekend perambulation.....

Edit - bingo card arrived - looks like plenty of options to get a full house for me. No idea about the instagram stuff though so I guess I'm already a pre-ride fail.... Will do it anyway and then send them something in the post to confuse them!

The bingo card is on the site - https://thedistance.cc/bingocard.pdf (Don't tell Stu about the middle item on row 2 :wink: )

I reckon I could get seven of those just stepping out of the door! (And if that kestrel comes back that'd be eight :-bd )

Just trying to think of some nearby trailside art - I think all the others can be fitted into about a 5 mile local loop, given good luck with birds of prey!

So has anyone done this then? I forgot until about mid ride, managed to get the bingo card on my phone and (more or less) got all the pics..... Will try and upload it to their site later if I can be arsed but here goes.....

Image
The bingo card....

Image
Flannel (under)shirt

Image
Trailside art - "Toy car on fence post" signifies the death of motorised transport. Or something.

Image
Something Historic = An old bridge. I could have photographed one of several ancient barronial piles in the area but f**** that.

Image
Trailside coffee, none of your gourmet nonsense

Image
Something Dangled - no nothing dangling

Image
Scenic View

Image
Uphill struggle (on a singlespeed anyway)

Image
Hike a bike (its steeper than it looks)

Image
Bike faffing = post ride washing as the bike as usual performed flawlessly

Image
Singletrack - this is a good one.

Image
Water crossing - no half measures here

Image
Trail snacks

Image
Picked some litter

Image
A majestic bird of prey? Err no, free range pigs. I usually see several buzzards, the odd kestrel and sometimes a sparrowhawk or two on all of my rides but today saw hee-haw, so photo'd these fine specimens instead.

Image
Post ride drinks (and Stevens the bakers double biscuit)

All very silly but added a new dimension to my usual bike rides which tend towards the relentless pedal so all good fun.....

Failed attempt, didn’t get a full house, not even a line and I was a day late too :oops:

Oh well, ‘was a fun way to spend an hour or so on the bike

Hopefully they’ll be a winter event :-bd
