Geocache Description:



This puzzle cache is part of a series of caches that when viewed on a map creates a
Geo Art image of a Bicyclist.


The final locations for these puzzles are along the Tri-County Triangle Trail and may be reached by bicycling and other non-motorized forms of locomotion. Parking coordinates for the finals in the series may be found as a waypoint on the cache page for the first cache in the series, Geo Art: Bicyclist - #01. Finally, after solving all of the puzzles in this series, you may use those solutions to find the coordinates for the bonus cache, Geo Art: Bicyclist - Bonus (you may also find a listing of all 47 puzzles on the Bonus cache page). The total round-trip distance on the Triangle Trail in order to get all of the finals and the bonus cache is approximately 16 miles. There are 47 caches (that make up the Geo Art) and the bonus cache!

Here are the 47 puzzles in this series and the bonus puzzle.

{Note: Please feel free to replace the container and/or log if they are missing or unusable. I have tried to give unmistakable hints for each final, so if you have the correct solution (checked by the given checksum), the hint should make sure that you find the container. Also, please know that most of the containers are zip-tied in place, so please don't try to yank the containers from their hiding spots. Please just remove the caps to access the logs.}

Puzzle #01

Using the Related Web Page, find the name of the bicycle parts that are extensions at the end of straight handelbars to allow for multiple hand positions. Count the number of letters in this name (if the name includes more than one word, count the total letters in all the words, but don't count the spaces). Let X stand for the number of letters in the name, and use that to find the two missing digits in the following final coordinates for this cache.

N 39 29.(X-4)20 and W 083 19.(X-2)41

{The checksum for the six digits after the decimal points is 15}.


Finally, a big thanks to cache_n_out for assisting in the planning for this project, for helping to hide the caches, and for graciously archiving two of his caches to make room along the bike trail and to City Slicker OH for helping to hide the caches!
