Dang! I was just about to post this and ask for a ruling. I could not find a Fox and Coon club in Colorado. Doubt it would have been accepted :)

Thumb New Tag. Hey Bird & baby in N.C.

A little pre-hurricane riding today. Now its time to do some storm prep.
Lets see your bike on a grade that the DOT feels is steep enough to mark. Sorry, to our flat-land taggers.

New Tag . Find a famous structure used in a movie.

The Sculptured House is featured in the 1973 Woody Allen movie Sleeper, where the home’s cylindrical elevator with sliding doors is used as a fictional device called the Orgasmatron



A closer view




A little info from Wikipedia . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sculptured_House

The Old Mill, in North Little Rock, Arkansas. This building, never an actual mill, was seen in Gone With The Wind.

Yep. I believe it's the longest bridge of its type in the U.S. So I wouldn't be surprised if whoever makes the grab gets a much shorter one.
Recently, Little Rock finished a couple more bridges. I saw this one here for the first time yesterday. This is the Two Rivers Bridge.


These bridges make it a lot easier for cyclists to get across the river or out to the rural highways west of Little Rock.

Grab!

Deer Run rapids swinging bridge...You can't ride a bicycle up the steps but you can ride it across the bridge to the other steps. I've done it before on another similar bridge.



There used to be a "low water" bridge between the swinging bridge and the new higher road bridge. In Google maps you can still see the old bridge right next to the swinging bridge. Coordinates=38.95424, -78.37529

New tag soon...

Speaking of low water bridges...


This one is right next to where I work. In case you want to see it on a map 38.8399, -78.3304.

I want to see something like this. Not a submarine bridge like you see so many pictures of on the TAT.
