Challenge: To visit as many of the Grim Riders ride landmarks as you can within 12 hours, between 6am and 6pm. Challenge ride rules apply. Different types of landmarks will carry different points' value and there will be points available for completing Bronze Award rides (e.g 5 landmarks from the same ride) and for collecting landmarks from a different number of different rides. Contact me if you would like a map of all the different landmarks for all the rides (please identify format required eg Autoroute, Mapsource or TomTom Navigator etc). See below for list of all points available for each ride - n.b. points for gaining a Bronze award as well are in addition to points for visiting individual landmarks (e.g. visiting 5 windmill landmarks will gain you 5 x 225 points, plus a bonus of 1125 points for a total of 2250 points for those landmarks).
Start and finish: Start from anywhere in Britain - finish will either be the same location as your start or there may be the option of a shared finish for all riders (6pm at the Wagon Load of Lime public house - a landmark on the Pub Crawl Ride).
Evidence needed: Timed receipts for start and finish of your ride. Photographs of your bike and placard in front of each of the landmarks on your selected ride, and photographs of your GPS unit with a numbered sticker attached.
