Bicycle photo tag game?

Does such a thing exist here? I belong to a motorcycle forum and we have a photo tag game. The way it works is you take a photo of your bike in front of an object like if I parked my bike in front of a statue of an animal. I'd take a photo and then post it here. Then people would go on and try to create the same photo in their city or town. The first person to get the photo picks the next image and it goes on an on like that. I did a search but couldn't find anything here. It's pretty fun on a motorcycle and I imagine it would be fun via bicycle as well..any thoughts on this?

Here is the motorcycle version so you can see what I'm talking about.

I do the ADVgame from time to time myself. How in the wide world could you cover enough ground on a peddle bike to get "interesting" tags? At best, you could do it in a heavily bike urban area. Actually, if you live in a heavily biked urban area it might be fun.....

Go to your regional forum and do it! Just go post a tag and see if any one picks up on it.

It wouldn't really work in a local setting. This tag game isn't for specific locations. If I take a photo of a donut shop you don't need to take a photo of the same donut shop in my town. You'd take a photo of a donut shop in your town.
Then you'd pick something else. Say a cool water fountain. Then I'd try to find a water fountain in my town. Or it could be a doing something shot, take a pic of your bike loaded with groceries, or hauling kids or pets.

We've got a few of those photo tag games here in the Twin Cities. They're for local landmarks, and part of the fun is figuring out just where the old photos are located. Fun game. I like the idea of doing a non-local style game. We should start one up here!

Sounds like we have one interested player. Lets see if anyone else wants to play and if so we can start another thread and get the game rolling.

Ok seems like there is some interest. I'm going to go ahead and start the game. I'll start another thread.

I posted the official game thread in the commuting section. Seems like it might get the most action there. I've also posted the first photo tag..so the game is afoot!
