However, since there are posts on that team from months ago, I'm not sure whether what I found is this year's team, or last year's.

I think that maybe last year's Team II. This years teams that aren't Strava clubs yet will be soon. As soon as we think up team names. :confused:

However, since there are posts on that team from months ago, I'm not sure whether what I found is this year's team, or last year's.

It would be great if we could update the top post(s) or create a new thread with just team names, members, links to clubs. I need all the club links so I can update the application to start showing the correct leaderboards.

Guidelines for creating clubs:
- Putting 2014 in the club name is a good idea. I'm still a member of the [2013] Team Ocho: the Underdogs.
- Make the clubs require "request to join" so we don't get people accidentally joining up. It's not quite as bad as last year, since the new members would also have to have authorized the freezingsaddles app, but things could still go wrong.
- We have (thanks to rcannon100) the cross-reference of forum names to strava IDs, so if we're having trouble tracking people down we should be able to help. In theory, the freezing saddles app can also get email addresses for any of the registered users. That's not something we store now ... but that data is being shipped back to us with every leaderboard should we need it to track someone down.

Another team naming guideline ... try not to make them *too* long. Or if you do, just make sure the team number is at the beginning. We have some limitations on some of the UI charts that might result in team names getting clipped. (Also maybe putting the "2014" at the end makes sense.) Or maybe a better guideline: be prepared to tweak your team name if it's not intelligible on the leaderboard charts :)

Both of you are wrong. A rest day, or even a rest weekend is very helpful, and let's not forget this is the cold and flu season, which is best to stay indoors. This holds true for all the teams.

Thanks for pointing that out that team six was being insincere. I was totally taken in.

I scoff at this as well!

So there.

Okay, I put in my request, in spite of the numb fingers from riding 17 miles today! ;) And I've now sent private messages to every member of Team 2, asking them to join as well.

Yeah, now that real teams are configured, teams that aren't setup yet (team 2, team 5) aren't showing up. And folks that haven't joined their teams aren't showing up either.

Don't forget "scruffy lookin'." And rest assured, as I pass you on the trail I'll be saying, "will somebody get this big walking carpet out of my way?" I'll also be certain you'll be saying, "no reward is worth this," and you'll promptly quit Freezing Saddles. It's all part of my plan.

Great name Jason - not sure if I'm more scoundrel or more nerf herder, but either way I already feel right at home on Team 6. BTW, my Strava name is Elihu Smails (and yes, I call my fancy bike "The Flying Wasp") so don't be surprised when you see Judge Smails ask to join Team Six's Strava group.

And when you're done adding me to the group, maybe you'd like to ... drop by the yacht club? Mmm? MMMM???

Probably saw this, but it is there now. Added it yesterday.

I see 10 teams, so I think we are good. Some people still hadn't authorized the app or joined their teams. I can come up with a list of stragglers in a couple days, though I imagine the captains have the pulse on this.

Might be good for team "slowly but surely" to add the team number? (And thanks for exercising Unicode requirements for team names; you uncovered a bug in the Google charts leaderboards!) :)

And maybe folks could standardize on using BAFS14 in the titles (at the end) as a short-but-sweet way to denote 2014 edition?

Is this the correct format? "Team 4 Bollard Busters BAFS14"

Sloppy seconds living up to their name as we are rag tagging our way up the leader board.

scorchedearth (jake) - If you are reading this, it looks like you aren't showing up on our leader board on the FS site. Not sure why (maybe you need to reauthoirze?).

Just need TerpAlum to join up and we will be all set!

edit: There is no one on the forum named TerpAlum - any idea who this is?

cvcalhoun
01-05-2014, 09:25 PM
Terpfan, you're still not showing up on the Strava club for Team 2, so the team isn't getting credit for all that noble effort. Can you please go to http://app.strava.com/clubs/46386 and request to join the club?


I missed today :(, but I did log rides on 1st and yesterday to work and home (in the middle of that stupid storm--which I feel like is a double anti-sleaze ride making up for my likely sleaze ride to get coffee tomorrow morning).

Terpfan
01-05-2014, 09:56 PM
Done and done. My two weekend lame coffee rides were actually quite the adventure on icy road and mup area. Anyway i requested to join so hoping all that counts and then all of our collective sub zero temp rides for Tuesday.

(Yes, don't worry as long as the rides were recorded / uploaded to Strava they will count retroactively whenever the club membership is approved.)

Mother Nature sure does seem to be trying to test us. There has been rain/sleet/snow or some combination of the three either on the ground or in the air almost every day of 2014 so far. If not for this challenge, I would NOT be riding to work today. But, thanks to this motivation, I'm heading to Hains Point in a few. BACON!

Looks like all the members of Team 2 are now on our Team 2 club roster at Strava. Yay! However, Terpfan and scorchedearth are still not showing up on the leaderboard at http://freezingsaddles.com/leaderboard/team_text. Could you two please check to make sure you have authorized the BikeArlington Freezing Saddles app on Strava? I know there were a lot of steps to enter this competition, and it's easy to miss one. You can authorize the app at this link: http://freezingsaddles.com/authorize

Looks like I'm on now as Terp F. The data is right for it albeit I forgot to turn on Strava two miles into my New Year's ride last week, but all good. And team 2 is currently in the lead it seems.

Far be it from me to point out that you guys have an unreasonable handicap on that one, inasmuch as the rest of the teams only have 9 members.

Oh, wait, I did just point that out, didn't I?
