    Default Riding Game & Challenges for 2017

    Scores not yet announced for 2016 yet and I know I only did a few as I was so busy with work, but as I got the last challenge of 2016 Yorick has asked me to kick off the new year so ...

    First challenge for 2017 is ... Your bike with something to do with Oliver Cromwell

    and to help out any newbies out there, this can be your bike with a place sign, pub sign, statue, memorial etc.

    Enjoy

    Can someone please ask admin to de-sticky the 2016 challenge and sticky this one? I tried last year and didn't get any response.

    Thanks

    I watched it as well, which is where I pinched the idea from ... after first researching bike friendly possibilities of course, but don't forget you have to ride a minimum 10 miles to get the picture

    Come on Admin, please sticky this and replace last year's thread. We're going to struggle to motivate people to join in if this keeps slipping down, or even off the page!

    A stable (next to Ye Olde Black Cross, Bromsgrove) used by King Charles II to reshoe his horse after fleeing his defeat by Cromwell at the Battle of Worcester:



    "On 3 September 1651 Oliver Cromwell (born 25 April 1599 – died 3 September 165 with a force of 28,000 men defeated the 16,00 strong force of King Charles II (born 29 May 1630 – died 6 February 1685) at the Battle of Worcester, ending the English Civil War. Charles fled the battle and was hunted as a fugitive throughout England as he made his way toward France, a journey which took him six weeks.

    The escape of King Charles II took him through Bromsgrove, at which point he was disguised as the servant of Jane Lane (born 1617 - died 9 September 1689), sister of the Royalist Colonel John Lane (born 8 April 1609 – died September 1667) of Bentley Hall. Jane had a military issued permit to travel, accompanied by a servant, to Abbot's Leigh in Somerset to visit a pregnant friend. The route would take them past Bristol and give Charles a chance to get a ship to France.

    Upon arrival in Bromsgrove their horse needed re-shoeing and Charles took it to the local blacksmith, an actual event recorded by Samuel Pepys. The site of this blacksmiths shop is thought to be where the garage of Ye Olde Black Cross is now."

    NEXT: Your bike at a rugby ground.

    I was thinking that I might take part in this, this year, but you've fucked me over right at the start already.
