    Seeing more pictures pop up in this thread of smiling faces without bikes in the frame.

    The OP does state: "You must take a picture of your bike with the park sign."

    Not sure how lenient the Keeper of this Pointless Prize will be on this stipulation, but wanted to call it out so there aren't disappointed Frozen Saddlites!

    Regarding getting credit for going to multiple parks on a ride I am going to need to consult with the technology folks. I don't have any issue with visiting multiple parks. I just don't know what is required to identify and count the ride/park.
    If the intention is to use an automated leaderboard based on the hashtag, then it's easiest if each entry is a separate ride (so then the generic https://freezingsaddles.org/pointles...2020ParkFinder leaderboard will properly equate "rides" with "number of entries"). Alternatively, you could have people just keep a running tally themselves in this thread.

    Discovered that I had ridden in another park before knowing about this PP, so I added the hashtag to that Strava ride title.
