Current GOAL

The goal of this coin is to spread the message of Bike Awareness while travelling from cache to cache.

Please don't use the "took it" to or "visited" option, just drop the geocoin in the next cache you visit that is save and big enough to hold coins.
Let others enjoy and log this geocoin too.
It is NOT the goal of this geocoin to make as much miles as possible, neither to keep track of all geocaches you have visited. Please use your own trackable to do so.

Please be careful to drop this coin on events. Those are high risk places for a coin to get lost.

The above mentioned logs will be removed.
Thank you...


About This Item

Tod Phillips

This coin has been released as part of the Bike Awareness Project. It is a project initiated by USA geocacher Rockin Roddy in response to the death of his dear friend and caching companion Tod Phillips who was cut off by a left turning vehicle too much in a hurry to notice oncoming traffic. Tod died on August 12, 2008. Tod left behind a wife and two kids. At this moment there are travelling more than 800 coins to help being aware of the more vulnerable travic participants. Besides bikers those are also scooter drivers and cyclists. The project is about what you can do to start the discussion to get travic a little saver.


Speeding, inattention, inexperience, fatigue, drugs and alcohol and illegal manoeuvres are given reasons for causing accidents. YOU have the power to do something to control each of these factors. Weatherconditions play another part in causing accidents and the way we behave in bad weather conditions. Please keep that in mind when you go out on the roads.

I'm putting a weather-warning into this traveling geocoin.

When there is rain, mist or snow:

  • Ask yourself if you really have to go out on the roads,
  • Take more time to travel,
  • Don't panic when the roads are bad and slippery,
  • Use common sense,
  • Slow down so you have time to watch, think and react,
  • Be patient, and expect the unexpected,
  • Snow, mist and rain can be a pain,
  • Avoid trouble - distance should double.
  • Bad weather can be worse than you think,
  • It is better to be alive when you arrive.

Picked this one up in Grayslake,Illinois and will be moving it South/Southwest in the next week or so. We plan on a two week vacation hitting Indiana,Tennessee,Kentucky,Georgia,Florida,Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma,Missouri,Arkansas,Iowa and finally back home to Illinois, so it's a mystery where this one is going to end up. Looks like it's been traveling quite a bit. Will move it along soon. Thanks for placing it out in the wild for us to find. And thanks for the message about being aware when traveling. A very good message for everyone to take heed.

The roads were wet today. The only reason I went out was to pick up someone at the airport. I didn't get to as many caches today as I originally planned, but I always slow down when driving under these weather conditions. I'll get the coin safely to another cache soon.
