the BVRRC Riders Challenge 2022

Challenge Dates: 03/06/2022-12/31/2022

To enable as many members to participate and be a part of the 2022 Riders Challenge, this year there are several parts with three different challenges.

In keeping with the name of the club, this year’s riders Challenge #1 has a Battlegrounds theme. To open up the challenge to a slightly wider variety of interests other than strictly battlegrounds, locations having a historical founding or preservation significance for our country will qualify.

The qualifications are fairly simple. Submit a pic of you and your bike at a United States Historical location that meets the criteria of being noted as a National Historic Landmark. Realizing that there are many (thousands) of historic landmarks, for the purpose of verification for this contest the landmark must be on the official list. This list can be readily found at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._National_Historic_Landmarks_by_state

Your location must be on the list to count for the contest, not because we want to limit where you go, but for verification purposes. You are free to go and claim any of these in any of our 50 states.

With the realization that latitude may need to be given for parking the bike at a location for a picture including the marker, submission of pictures that document you rode to that location may be accepted. For instance, a picture of the bike clearly in the vicinity, along with another picture of you at the actual location could be submitted.

Submit the pics to the administrator along with the following info:

Your Name

Date of visit

Name and address of attraction

Can more than one member use the same location?

Of course!  Each member will need to do their own submission though.

Is there a minimum number of sites to qualify for the contest?

No, participation is voluntary, and every member is free to participate at whatever level they wish.

How is the winner(s) selected?

The member having the most number of sites visited, documented and approved by the admin, will be the winner. In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by which one of the two has the highest mileage documented for Challenge #2.

Challenge #2 is for the rider attaining the highest number of miles ridden from the beginning of the contest through the end of 2022. To participate, submit a pic of your bike’s odometer documenting the mileage on the bike(s).

Include your name, bike description, date and mileage.

At the end of the contest, submit another pic along with the same info, including the miles ridden.

Challenge #3 is for the most BVR events attended. Member attendance is documented for events, and the sheet is found Members Attendance on the Members Area on the website. Check it to make sure it is correct and notify the Secretary of any discrepancy.

Bonus Challenge

Since there will be pics submitted, try to make them interesting! A bonus award will be given to the member who submits the most creative pic in Challenge #1. Winner will be determined by member vote by an online poll.

And remember, the more participation we have, the more we will all benefit!
