CacheWalker SuperBike Challenge 2017
« on: January 11, 2017, 05:19:58 pm »
This is the place for all discussion (unless you think your point deserves its own topic) for the
CacheWalker SuperBike Challenge 2017

The TB race will begin at 0:00 February 1st, and will end on 0:00 December 25th.
Participants are asked to attach toy motorbikes ('SuperBikes') to a Travel Bug. If you have trouble finding a SuperBike but would like to take part, let us know!

The Rules:

  • The race officially begins at 0:00 on February 1st 2017. However, TBs can be added to the race at any point after this start date.
  • The race is on until 0:00 December 25th 2017
  • The TB with the most miles on this date will be declared the 2017 Championship Winner at the 2017 Twixmas Bash (apparently there will be one!)
  • 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).
  • The owner of the TB must not be present with the cacher who's moving it IF they both visit the same cache together for the drop.
  • 'Discover/Visted' logs do not count.
  • CacheWalkers can only have ONE TB each in the race (unless a couple/family are wishing to have their own).
  • If your TB 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 2017

How to join the race:
Please email griffgrof@cachewalker.co.uk or Griff Grof via his profile with the public Travel Bug ID (TBxxxx), that you find on the 'Details' page of your TB on Geocaching.com. He will provide you with the password to join the race (which might be posted here instead if people want?)
There no limit for the number of participants.
Please note, you can only take part if your TB has a SuperBike attached to it! (Hopefully you can find one easily but let us know if you can't and we can mail one out to you!)
Therefore, you can still request to take part after the start date, but the sooner the better/further!


Please name your TB in this format: CWSBC 2017 - [your caching name]

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

I've all the bit I need to send a TB out for this race.

Am I going to be the only one or is anyone else planning on taking part?

We have just got our bike this morning - so ready to go! So you won't be the only ones taking part.

We have registered our Tb with griff groff, but can't seem to enter it in the race - not sure what we are doing wrong though - have you managed to enter yours Yorkshire Yellow?

No.  I didn't have the chance to do it at the weekend, so will try at lunchtime here at work.

I've activated my TB (a police motorbike) and emailed details to GG.  I'll be dropping it off in a motorway mayhem cache tomorrow.

I've just added you both to the race, I managed to change it to adding TBs manually like before so there's no complication with passwords now @hogshunters.

The race has been very quiet so far. I haven't got round to getting a bike for it :D.

It's a shame that we didn't have something sorted for Twixmas or a March event to properly launch the race.
