Painted Silo – IBA

Recently an new challenge was introduced to the IBA ride list specifically around the phenomenon that has arisen out of small towns painting their grain silos (and also water towers). The Australian Silo Art Trail Series.

There are four levels to the challenge –

  • Insanity – visit all painted silos within 10 days
  • Gold – visit all painted silos in four connected states within five days.
  • Silver – visit all painted silos in three connected states within three days.
  • Bronze – visit 45 painted silos (no time restriction).

I am already photographing painted silos when I’m riding around the countryside as I love them. These are an amazing depiction of communities and add colour and character to the landscape. So working towards a bronze level isn’t much additional effort.
