I was thinking about doing a Grand Tour type of ride similar to what Rose City Motorcycle Club does (http://www.rose-city-mc.org/RCEventfliers/GT.html). Only instead of having people pay a registration fee and get a passport book to have stamped at places, it’s a bit more organic …
We have a number of people contribute to a list of “check points” around the area - say a 500-1000 mile radius of Portland. The places would be small and preferably remote locations that involve a fun ride to get to, and serve a good burger or have some unique draw to them. The directive would then be that people would need to ride to those check points and shoot a picture of themselves with their bike, in front of the place, followed by a post to an SBWS forum category that was setup specifically for this activity.
It could be setup with a time-limit to complete all checkpoints and then when it was over, we could get together for a big barbecue/banquet where we could raffle off some stuff, drink beer and bullshit about the epic adventures we had while riding to all the obscure, out-of-the-way places that served as checkpoints. The number of checkpoints you hit would determine the number of raffle entries you get.
Thoughts? Would anyone be interested in doing that?
