Rain turned to snow before the first summit. Challenging? Yes. Fun? No. Fortunately, nothing was sticking to the road.

Yowza. It's so much easier to do when you're just going a few miles. LOL. That's quite a ride you had.

Should definitely qualify as antique- a citrus grove spray truck for fertilizer or pesticide from ~1930s, taken oh, about an hour ago.

Very nice.

So, what's the next photo mission?

I want to see a giant animal sculpture. The Cabezon dinosaurs are like... 80 miles round trip from me (with about 4,500ft,) and always windy, so I don't wanna ride out there. There is a local giant chicken, though.

Must be larger than life. The chicken is a good 6 footer.

NICE PIC!!! I was wondering if anyone in the nicer climates would join in. I haven't seen any old cars lately. It's like full blown winter up here right now. Too early for it. Grrrrrrrr........

There is one of those at a manufacturing place by me, on my way to driving my daughter to work. But nowhere I ride..... LOL. Maybe someone else will have one close. Either that or I'll load up my bike in my trunk and have a go around there. It's on a super busy road though.

I thought every town had some sort of oversized animal hanging around. This isn't even the big chicken I was thinking of earlier, but I rode by it this morning, so I stopped for a second.
Bonus giant man lurking in background.

There are some oversized animals around here somewhere. I just gotta get the time to get there by bike. The weather here has been wet and chilly, with lots of work thrown in.

So what's the next mission? I think when you post your picture you're supposed to also say what the new mission is.

Maybe it's just an example since there is no bike in the photo?

Yeah, I was just snapping a pic of a big chicken. As it's on a roof, getting the bike up there would have been a trick. I also didn't want to finish my own challenge.

I wanna see something other than my local giant chickens-- there used to be three in the local area, but somebody stole one.

California. There's definitely not lots of weird, big animal statues hanging around where I live. Up in the hoidy toidy part of Milwaukee there are some of these red lawn animals that were kind of popular for a while, but that's way too far away from me now. And that was years ago. I wonder if they still are popular. I think it was a particular artist or something. They were like these red puffy type renderings of horses and such. Looked sort of cartoonish. I used to cut lawns up in that area and then at some point I built home offices / furniture stuff. "The North Shore".

Yeah, hopefully someone can come up with something!!!!

The best I can do is a horse sized dog with a dog sized cat. Larger than life, I would think.

Taken this morning with the Norco as the sun was rising.

Edit to add: If this photo qualifies, then the next mission I request would be a photo of your bike with a police station, sub-station, or "cop shop" behind the bike. A cop shop is one of those small neighborhood police outposts.

Definitely qualifies. That's a pretty big dog. I immediately thought of "dog cat mouse" from The Office.

I don't think police substations are a thing in these parts, so I just did a loop this morning. I'd still like to see pics of antique cars and giant animals. And police stations! Some of ours are pretty boring... I'm looking at you, Colton PD.






The last is definitely the most interesting, built as the Redlands City Hall by the WPA in 1939. Looks almost completely unchanged since it was built.

If those are pics from this morning, I think you need a new mission. Or am I interpreting that you want another statue type animal thingy?

I'll think of another mission, but I'm hoping for some other submissions on any of the previous topics... as so far it's been mostly just me and FiftySix.

The fact that I ride 5-6 days a week has nothing to do with that.

A Grand Slam! Nice pics.

Had to do a double take on the Donut Killer. Kinda "in your face" to the stereotypical cop.

Yeah, but the more varied missions, the more someone else might be able to join. Plus it might take some time to gain traction with other people. But flangehead posted a pic too.

We gotta spin the plates til it hits critical mass. LOL.

I'm guessing the early cold spell has put a slow down on people willing to play. Yesterday, the weather was pretty much back to normal here.

Oh, and it probably needs to be a picture you go and get. Not one from your archives or in the past. That would sort of be like cheating. Although it's an honor system thing. I'm sure you guys and gals get the point.
Can we get a ruling from the OP regarding the game. So far people who post the pics don't seem to be including the next assignment. And/or they're waiting on others to post their pics of the assignment. Is that the intent? Can there be a rule that if an assignment isn't included in the post that the assignment is open to the first person who posts one?

Well then continuing my theme, I'd like to see a goose. Or geese. Live one, painting, yard ornament, whatever. Goose.
