Can I put that the race begins on Saturday? Will we all be ready by then? Is your new bike set up WT?

Right, here's the deal:

I'm about to set it up on tb-run  :) Can I please have a list of all TBs that are going to participate (don't worry TJ, got yours).

Also, do you want it to be a distance race? Or a FAIR distance race - this is in principal just as the normal distance race. But here, we only consider the first 'placed' log of every cacher. This prevents that cachers keeping trackables, dipping them in every cache and helping them to get high mileage. In case there is more than one log on the first day we will consider the one with the highes mileage on that day. ???

Also WT, can I add TBs at a later point if the race is private?

My bike is geared up to go  ;D

My understanding is yes you can.

Now I need to find my TB's - wonder which box they ended up in  :o

Good luck  ;) :D

I'll say the race begins at Midnight today (or is that tomorrow) so we can get our bikes out any time after that. Will add the Wrighties when they confirm if they're using old or new.

Might e mail him now.

Ok, didn't know that. YOU join the race when I provide you with a password.  :)

Website says:

I have just initiated a new Travel Bug(R) race on tb-run.com. If you like, take a look and join my race using the following link:http://www.tb-run.com/join.php5?run=THECWSBC2012

The race is marked as 'not public'. You need the following password to join * (this means that you can only join with the password - this stops random people joining)

Cheers,
Griff Grof

*I will PM the password to those I know are taking part: Wrighty, walktall and tarmacjohn.

THE RACE IS ON FROM NOW - Get your bikes out as soon as you can!

tarmacjohn and my bike have been added. No password needed for you TJ.

The race has not yet begun, think it actually starts at Midnight.

The race has begun  ;D

Find the CWSBC link at the top to take you to the page. You'll all get a head start, as I won't be placing mine in a cache for another week or so. I want to place it in a popular traditional, and not finding any of those tomorrow  :)

Please post your bikes when activated here so I can add them to the race  :)

If you can't find the race in the tabs, visit it here: (visit link)

Only me and TJ so far  ;)

Description
The CacheWalker SuperBike Challenge is back. The last race took place in 2008, but now with a lot more cachers in the area, we thought it was about time to bring the race back! There are only a few of us racing this year, but hopefully a lot more next year. The winner is the TB with the most miles as of 25/12/12 - then, the winner will be announced at the CacheWalker Twixmas Bash 2012 - and will go home with the CWSBC trophy!

THE RACE IS ON!

Rules that were added by CacheWalker

1) The race is on until midnight December 25th 2012 (i.e. any logs which Groundspeak dates 26/12/12 will be ignored)

2)'Riders' may not move their own TBs along

3)The Rider with the most miles on this date will be declared the 2012 Championship Winner at the 2012 Twixmas Bash (apparently there will be one! )

4)Virtual drops will not be counted - TBs must be dropped & collected by different Cachers (if moved on by the same Cacher only the first jump will be counted)

5)'Discover' logs will not count for Cacher count

It's been pretty wet all week and next week doesn't look much better but I've found my spare TB's, so need to set one up ready for me to drop off in a cache attached to my red superbike  ;D

I would love to get my SuperBike going, caching really seems to have taken a back seat the last couple of weeks due to work and Scout arrangements. I might get chance to get out this weekend but only if it rains and I can't do the garden.

Exactly the same here, with being busy for caching, weather and my dad doing the garden.
