The actual intent of these tag games in general is to get out and ride! You are correct the last tag does have a lot of really good roads to explore in that same area. Forget the tag... Just get out and ride!!!

As you say, out and riding is the thing to do, although it's colder and wetter than promised.



Don't fancy trying this on my own, I'd be picking myself and the lump up too many times, it was hard enough walking down and back up to check the duck was still there:


I put him back in the crate, so the tag is still live, wouldn't be right if I didn't go down on the bike. Great spot, though, except for the flies.

Did the bruce anyway:


...and explored a bit until the weather finally chased me home.

Thank you, Routemaster, the other roads you suggested were great too:

Nice! You even got Chris out for a kinder and gentler mixed surface ride. Not bad!

New tag

Nestled right under a tree- can't miss it







Need more clues?

It's the tree with a branch leaning against it




Next to a tree with a sign on it






Gratuitous team shot on this shady road, the team is heading west, so the duck is on the south side of the road- iow left side heading west (more clues!)





But if you need more clues....


West of Promised Land.
South of the lake on which The Office staff had a booze cruise.
We did not see a creamery on this road.

The paved section is so much worse than the gravel. Since you are so close, we don't have to worry about the duck sitting on the same road for very long then, right?

could have moved the duck today, but I'll wait a bit and give someone else the chance to play.
