    A very familiar sight from the old version of the Reston Century.

    My official photo with the bike is on Strava. But, here is a close up of a cool park sign. If you want to go to the official park, it's another 165' in 1/3 of a mile. I passed on that today.

    Default Is it okay?

    Does anyone know - if I find two parks in one day is it okay to use one of them for credit another day? I know you only get credit for one per day.

    I'm pretty sure you can visit multiple parks in one day, they just need to be on different separate rides (the Strava split tool is your friend).

Personally I don't like to stop and take a picture every few feet or miles so I just pick one park (or public art, or history sign or wormhole etc. a day). Of course my parks finds don't count since I am sponsoring the prize. I am just in awe at all the parks around us, some in our own "backyards" that we did not even know were there until we started looking for parks.
    Also, I think the rules are the same as last year -- and this is from that rule set, which is included in the first post of this thread:

    So, the short answer is it is not okay.
