How To Play BikeTag
HOW TO PLAY
You must discover the “mystery location” and take a picture of your bike there. Then you must bike to a new "mystery location" of your choosing and take a picture of your bike there. Submit both pictures to the TAG IT! section. NOTE: you may not "reserve" being "IT" by immediately posting a photo of your bike in the old "mystery location" before finding and posting a picture of the new "mystery location."
Mystery locations must be freely accessible to the public and by bicycle. Mystery locations should be unique/interesting/identifiable. Tags that include only nondescript features (blank walls) are not acceptable and will be removed. Mystery locations may not be mobile objects (food trucks, for example). Discovered mystery locations and new mystery locations must be tagged with the same bicycle, on the same ride. Pictures of discovered mystery locations and new mystery locations must be posted at the same time.

Bike Tag Game
BikeTag is a mystery photo tag game played on bicycles. BikeTag.Org is a place for people to see the most recent Bike Tags in their city and participate in the game in an easy and simple way, without needing to login to anything. The origins of the game of BikeTag, as far as we have been able to track, put the game in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 2007. BikeTag on Reddit was started on in 2011 on /r/BikingATX, that was then adopted by /r/bikeLA, that was then adopted by /r/chibike. The game in /r/CyclePDX was created in 2016 and this website was created in 2018 as a tool for the game in Portland, Oregon.
