Landmark Challenge 2024 Winners Announced

Both the overall individual winners and the winning branch in the next Nacelle. Whereas the individual awards go to those who manage to visit the most landmarks, the branch award goes to the branch with the highest combined number of visited landmarks. There will be a presentation to the winners at the AGM in April.

Three of those who took part in 2023 managed all fifty landmarks so congratulations to them. Why don't you have a go in 2024?

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? There's nothing better than riding with friends and good company so maybe you'll be persuaded to try the Landmark Challenge as a group or a Branch? It also doesn't matter if you only do a few of the sites - you'll get a mention in dispatches.
