    Default Pointless Prize 2022 - License Plates

    I would like to sponsor a new pointless prize for 2022. #Plates

    Goal: Find & photograph license plates from all 50 States & DC

    How to Play
    If you're riding along and you see a license plate from a state you haven't already photographed:
    1. take a photo of it (with or without your bike in the pic)
    2. include it in your Strava post with the #Plates hashtag
    3. post it to this License Plates Pointless Prize Thread in the Forum as well (this is where I'll officially track/count entries)

    Winner(s) (Prize details to come):
    • Main Game Winner will be the person with the most plates (only 1 plate per state + DC will count)
    • Tiebreaker: First person to find 51 plates
    • Alternate Scoring Winner will be the person with the most unique plates (I will count one of each variant of state plates + one each of special/other plates (e.g. Canadian province, Diplomat, US Gov't, etc.)

    Here is a link to a Google Spreadsheet I will use to keep track of submissions.

    Why?????
    It's random to find plates on your ride.
    It's like an Easter Egg hunt (you never know where you'll find a new one).

    More details:
    You can include multiple license plates per ride.
    Ride safe! It's easy to get distracted if your staring at license plates....be careful!
    I tried this on my own last Spring in DC....took me ~2 weeks to find 48 states+DC (never found WY or ND around DC )

    Good luck, keep your eyes peeled, and have fun!!! -Kris

    Default Oops

    I tried to like this post TWICE, very cool concept. Plus makes us more aware of cars.

    Anyway apparently liking it twice makes you DISLIKE IT. NOT TRUE.

    Gotta love this 1980's technology.

    Regards, Jessica

    The only thing harder than finding the plates is uploading them through Tapatalk
