geocaching and riding

Postby richvass » Tue Jan 08, 2013 22:11 pm

Hi All, I discovered geocaching on the web last Sunday and I'm now hooked. What better way to get out on a bike ride and with an objective or two along the way. Add the geocache coordinates into your GPS and off you go. Does this interest you? There are hundreds of caches everywhere!

Done it before, got bored quickly. A novel idea but i found they were either too easy to find or made hard by simply placing them in stupid places. In my eyes it is better suited to countries that have difficult to access places like big mountains and deserts, snowy expanses etc. The better ones i have seen are ones that require absailing or skiing to reach.

Here most were just scattered around places ive walked or cycled past 100 times.

I do like the idea though.

Had a few goes at this a while back but on foot. OK to start with but got a bit tedious after a short while, might have been something to do with my s*it iPhone though :D
