Description:
You may waymark any public bicycle tender that is specifically designed to be used to secure bicycles. *NEW REQUIREMENTS 8/3/18* This category will no longer accept bike shelters, storage lockers or 'innovative' bike racks that aren't artistic in nature. Traditional, run-of-the-mill tenders will NOT be accepted and approved in this category. Help keep this quality category as it was intended to be: Please practice Selective Waymarking!
Expanded Description:
Bicycle tenders have something for everyone, whether you plan to create a new waymark or visit an existing one. Townships, cities, and even entire countries, are conducting Bike Rack competitions - we are looking for those unique, non-traditional, creative and artistic solutions to securing bicycles.

This category is intended to serve two purposes:

  • 1) to discover and record those artistic/creative bicycle tenders that would stand out as 'unique' among all the bicycle racks located in and around the waymarked location
  • 2) to encourage people to seek out and use bicycle tenders - in other words - Go Ride A Bike!
  • (For those of you who are wanting to rack up the numbers can ride your bike all over town and waymark every traditional bicycle rack or locker or protective device you can find (driving a car is highly discouraged for this), Please don't expect these to be approved any longer.

    If you are waymarking those 'unique', 'non traditional', 'functional piece of art', 'creative' or 'artistic' bike storage or security devices, kudos to you!

    One important note: What appears to be unique to one person can seem entirely commonplace to another. If the bike tender you are waymarking looks something like all the other bike tenders in town, or is commercially mass-produced, it's probably 'TRADITIONAL' and not acceptable, unless you can show that it has been placed in a unique manner, or has been 'embellished' with some form of artwork.

    If the bike rack is a 'unique' design but has been replicated all over the community, only the first submission will be considered 'unique' and admissible as ONE waymark.

Instructions for Posting a Bicycle Tenders Waymark:
Coordinates must be personally obtained by the Waymarker. You must submit at least one original picture showing the bike rack (or locker, etc) AND one picture of the device in its environment. Extra point if there are bikes in there. Two extra points if one of the bikes is yours!
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Please provide at least one original picture, and tell a little about your visit.

Did YOU ride your bike there?
