This example is a crick. I know it was well intended, but boy did this screw up the watershed.

What would be the Australian equivalent of the WPA?
Not sure, but
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was an ambitious employment and infrastructure program created by President Roosevelt in 1935, during the bleakest years of the Great Depression. Over its eight years of existence, the WPA put roughly 8.5 million Americans to work

So is this still the tag? Or what is the tag?

Dang, La Guardia airport, central Park, the Bronx SUNY maritime campus and it looks like nearly all the bridges in NYC were constructed by WPA.

Since it is now well passed 10 days this tag has well and truly gone stale. It is a shame is was not done in northern summer, the subject was interesting, I hoped to see what sort of projects WPA created. In Aus we did not have a similar scheme but some individual projects, Sydney Harbour Bridge was one. But I'm not riding into the city, it bad enough in a car.

New Tag
A 'nest' as big as your bike, this is an ant nest. Could be any animal, bird, spider or insect, except humans, plenty of them with oversize nests.

This is an ant nest, probably white ants.

Damn. Glad I don't live anywhere near one of those things. The only "nest" I can think of as large as a bike is a beaver lodge, which I already tagged last year. Besides, no riding around here for a while. 11°F/-12°C right now.

Interesting tag. Seems typical for Australia! We’ve got osprey nests around here that are quite large, but I don’t know how I’m going to get my bike 80’ in the air for a picture. I’ll be thinking about this tag to see what I can come up with.

I went for a nice long ride to Pennsylvania today and I didn't see a single nest as big as my bike. I guess that's a good news/bad news thing. ;)

Anyway, I did pass several very large lakes along the way and I hereby declare, by the powers of tag game rules, the new tag is a boat launch.

Glad it’s moving again. I forgot to grab a new tag while out earlier this week.
