Geocache Description:


We'll Cross That Bridge...

 

Welcome to Millennium Bridge! This bridge spans the river Ouse and was opened in April 2001. The view from the bridge is especially lovely at night, as the bridge is lined with colour changing lights (just remember to bring your insect repellant!). The area around the river occasionally floods especially after days of heavy rain, so be aware of this when planning to find the cache as crossing the bridge may not be possible.

Seeing as the bridge cost £4.2million to build, we might as well make good use of it...

On to the questions!

STAGE 1

Number of times it says "millennium" on the oval sign = A

2nd digit of the Lifebuoy Housing Number (near oval sign) = B

The year of the competition for crossing methods (record last 3 digits) = Z

STAGE 2 is at N53 5B.(Reverse Z) W001 4.(B + A/2)(A + 1)(B - 1)

 


 

STAGE 2

How many letters are in the highest word on the signs (record 2 digits) = C

How many people are on this set of signs? = D

STAGE 3 is at N53 56.D(C - D)(A - 1) W001 0(C-B).9((B + C)/2)(D + A - B)

 


 

STAGE 3

Orbital route number + (4 * distance to uni) = E

How many pedals are there on the transpennine trail? = F

Distance to Selby / (8 * distance to South Bank) = G

STAGE 4 is at N53 5E.EEF W001 0A.(C - B + F - A)G(2*D - E)

 


 

STAGE 4

Orbital Route sign number - distance to Fulford (record 2 digits) = H

Lifebuoy Housing Number - 5 (record 2 digits) = J

Number of bicycles = L

 

THE CACHE is at N53 5E.(H*J) W001 0A.(J-H)L(J/L)

 

Have fun! :)
