CacheWalker SuperBike Challenge 2015
« on: December 28, 2014, 05:14:49 pm »
This is the place for all discussion (unless you think your point deserves its own topic) for the
CacheWalker SuperBike Challenge (CWSBC) 2015

The race will begin at 0:00 on 1st January (2nd), and will end on 24th December 2015 at 0:00 (25th)
The SuperBike which travels the furthest will be declared the winner!

The Rules:

  • The race is on until midnight December 24th 2015 (i.e. any logs which Groundspeak dates 25/12/15 will be ignored)
  • The SuperBike with the most miles on this date will be declared the 2015 Championship Winner at the 2015 Twixmas Bash
  • CacheWalkers may not move their own SuperBikes along
  • Therefore, TBs must be dropped & collected by different cachers (if moved on by the same Cacher only the FIRST jump will be counted, regardless of 'Visited' or 'Dropped Off' log, any subsequent logs by the same cacher will not be counted
  • Discover/Visited logs do not count
  • The owner of the SuperBike must not be present with the cacher who's moving it IF they both visit the same cache together for the drop.
  • CacheWalkers can only have ONE TB each in the race (unless a couple/family are wishing to have their own)
  • If your SuperBike goes missing YOU ARE OUT OF THE RACE - you cannot re-release another SuperBike with your copy tag as part of this year's race.

The official TB-run page for the race is now up and running here - CWSBC 2015

How to join the race:
Please email admin@cachewalker.co.uk or Griff Grof with the public Travel Bug ID (TBxxxx), that you find on the 'details' page of your TB on Geocaching.com (please do not use the secret TB code that is printed on the tag) - you will be promptly added to the race.
There no limit for the number of participants.
Please note, you can only take part if your TB has a SuperBike attached to it! (If you weren't at Twixmas but would still like to take part please let Griff Grof know as he has a couple of spare bikes, or strongsRus who have several more!)
Therefore, you can still request to take part after the start date, but the sooner the better/further!


Please name your SuperBike in this format: CWSBC 2015 - [your caching name]

Let the race (and discussion) begin - 3,2,1... GO!

If I want to reuse an old TB do I need to delete all of the logs for it, or will the mileage only be calculated from when the race starts?

I'm pretty sure that it won't count any milage before the start date.

You could try  :)

Looks like it will start from zero so that is good, I will make sure the first move gets recorded correctly.

I uploaded a new image of my Superbike (with stabilisers...) to replace Paul Scholes, I selected make this the default image on upload, then deleted the old Paul Scholes photo, although on the TB race page Paul Scholes is still showing, any ideas as it looks a bit odd?

I'm sure it'll update eventually :)

About to post someone who wasn't at Twixmas a spare SuperBike... :)

If you would also like one please say, although I'll now only have two spares left - strongsRus have a bagful if they took the spares home :)

Hopefully strongsRus will be posting us a couple of bikes.

Hope they fare better than our footballers.

One of my 2013 bikes has just landed back in the country after being to Australia and back. I will give it a few weeks to get home give it a service and a polish and send it off again as a 2015 bike.

If it doesn't get home I will release a new one.

As I've got one of mine back, minus the bike, seems right to send it out again with a new bike :)

I renamed mine to fall more into line with the other contestants. Don't know if an admin needs to update anything to show the new name, or if it will show the new name when the race page does its next update?

It updates automatically, I think I read images/names was once every few days, hence why @gaz_zippy 's and mine still show the footballer pictures - it'll all change eventually :)

I hope to drop mine off tomorrow if I can find a cache big enough, the SuperBike now has laminate sheet cable tied to it, inside a zip lock bag which also contains a TB mission sheet, not much more you can do to make it muggle proof really.
