The N.W. London Branch took the Landmark Challenge by storm this year with a number of their members taking part visiting the most landmarks of any branch in 2016. The award was presented to Chris North of N.W. London by Club Vice Chairman Steve Battye at the 2017 AGM.
There is also an individual winner of the Landmark Challenge and this year it was Dave Butler, also of N.W. London.
The Landmark Challenge is run by the Birmingham and Wolves Branch, and is a relatively simple concept. All you have to do is solve the clues to identify the landmarks, then visit each one and take a picture of it with your bike to prove you were there. Don't worry if you're not good with clues, the map reference is given to help you out. Oh, and don't worry if you're no good with map references, the clues and map references are available online and you just have to click on them to go to the place on Google maps.
Now we say it is a simple concept... but have you ever tried to visit 50 different places around the UK in a biking year? If you're an all-weather rider that's still one a week (assuming time off for Christmas and Easter). But of course you could visit more than one in a weekend so maybe it isn't such a difficult challenge? Well the weather has turned so maybe you'll be persuaded to try the Landmark Challenge yourself?
