    Default Metro East Illinois Spyder Ryders photo op challenge!!!

    Photo Op Challenge!!
    Please see attached link for a "just for fun" list of rydes that may just give you an excuse to ryde.(as if you need one!)
    We all find times that we want to ryde, but there are no group rydes scheduled or no Spyder events happening close to you. And sometimes we just want to ryde alone so we can turn around and come back home, or better yet, take a road that we have never been on just to see where it goes. We have come up with a game to kick start a ryde and at the same time record some memories of places we have been. The following list of places are worth various points. As you visit, take a picture of your Spyder at the destination and collect points. As always, use caution when stopping in busy areas, and if the exact location cannot be photographed safely, take a picture in proximity. For example, a welcome center instead of a road sign saying you are entering a state. If you can’t get your Spyder close enough, take one of you at the location. Points for each are listed following the location. It’s just for fun and we are on the honor system! Ryde safe and have fun!!!!! Winner gets listed here next year as champion!!!!!
