    Nice idea.

    Methinks you are supposed to start at A, though I may have the wrong end of the stick.....

    My understanding is that everyone works through their own alphabet, starting at A.
    Is this correct?
    I’ve had a quick gander and I reckon I can get to F on just a 20 mile ride.

    If this rain and wind would bugger off.

  11. You are totally correct. We all do our own ABC etc. That is what makes it such a good challenge.
     
  12. I thought that but then thought that'll make for a damned long thread, but hey ho not to worry, so in that case I shall back track a wee bit with my A................

  13. Hopefully it will make for a long thread.

    Even taking XYZ out. I am still going to b struggling. I am even looking at Northern Germany now to find towns I can use. It will give me somewhere else to ride. ^_^

    I think it is a brilliant idea, all I have to do is figure out how to get a picture up once I have taken it.

    I generally ride with a group of people who I think would not be keen on me stopping so often for a photo. I could cheat and post screengrabs from my video camera on my bike, but I guess that would not be in the spirit of the challenge.

    If you want to make it really difficult then people should only be able to take the photos in alphabetical order, so no visiting village B and getting a photo before you have been to A.
