Hey, congrats. I think you may be out of action for longer than a "bit". Is this your first?

So no clean consensus on file photos.

I've looked at some of the other threads and some allow file photos and some don't. I'm sort of torn on this now after some thought. Really because the idea behind the tag game in the first place is to give ya a reason to get out and ride when you might not otherwise...not take a trip down memory lane. Or give ya a mission if ya get bored with just riding...as if. Or just to get you out of the house. Even if it's cold...all the more reason for the game in the Winter. And if you have to go get a new tag, you probably stay out longer. That's the point, right? To ride?

Anyway...just a thought. I think out loud sometimes. It doesn't always work out . And this isn't my game...it belongs to everyone who plays.

So if it's all the same to everyone, I'll leave the rules the way they stand for now.

Myself, I feel like with only being able to make new tags and it being so cold, I wouldn't have a chance til Spring.

You guys are just mingling around Nashville so far, and with only 24 hours to get a new tag, and it being so cold, nobody will make it into my neck of the woods.

I'd imagine, as long as the file photo isn't out of date (i.e. building in picture no longer existing) then I'd be fine with it.

I agree and I had good intentions of getting out Thursday and duplicating your above tag but the cold kept me in. I figured I could add a file photo with another bike after that ride but felt that a current photo showing the copy of of the old tag would really set a standard.
But I too was thinking out loud.

Cool idea because most of my outings are solo and in the spur of the moment, this would give me just another excuse to get out more.

Groovy man...


The use of file photos would speed the game up and most likely spread it out over a larger area as well but those things will happen anyway as the weather improves so...meh

I dunno about y'all, but I'm thinking this Winter has been pretty unconventional. I usually ride through the Winter, but this one has been REALLY cold and REALLY wet/snowy. It's the most winterlike Winter I can recall. Typically we'd have quite a few almost if not above 50 degree days tossed in, but those have been rare.

But we are in an El Niño year . Kinda expected the moisture, but the real cold...not so much

agreed. i rarely commute by car and there have been a few weeks that have been totally bikeless due to below freezing temps and wetness. i don't mind cold, but i draw the line at really cold and really wet at the same time.

Not sure if this has been tagged or not, if not it is "removed upon request as it is a secret". So, if not already tagged do i get to post a file pic or not
