Hi guys! Since I was designated the official "team thread starter"... Here ya go!

It was awesome to meet everyone at the Happy Hour and I am excited to start gathering some points! I guess this is where we will chit chat and make everyone jealous because we were the first team to start a thread. :cool:

Any suggestions on an actual name?

Ha, A bit close to home for me. I hit one on the W&OD about a month ago. Hit it but good too. Stopped and looked but it made it into the brush. Felt real bad but the dumb bunny ran under my front wheel. Add to this I hit a rabbit and made it 2D with a car on Easter one year.....

That admitted/said I am OK with any name. (almost)

Any Group Sunday rides?

Dirt's leading a ride for studded tires on the icy WOD tomorrow morning, I may sit this one out - too much like my commute. I was thinking maybe a 30 mile coffee ride around noon with the family. Want to join? Team?

I'm planning to start from Bikenetic around noon, ride with family on road tires, will avoid ice. Think we'll hit 2 coffee shops maybe 25 - 30 miles if anyone wants to join. Check back here on this thread in case plans change.

Jake - have a good ride, don't think we'll make it down to St. Elmo's today.

I'll be doing the WABA women's ride. The ride itself is 19 miles but I plan on riding from Gravelly in which will give me an extra 11 miles round-trip. ;)

SS/FG! If I didn't already have too many bikes I'd look at a SS belt drive. I have no experience with them, but, yeah, always thought they looked interesting for low maintenance. (The 2015 Raleigh RXS specs caught my eye when it came out although I'm not a fan of the aesthetics.)

Now to step out of this team's thread...

Got a few miles in both Saturday and Sunday. Sunday was spent at Lake Fairfax in Reston enjoying the beautiful snowy single track. :cool:

I did not commute to work this morning (I can do cold, I can do rain, but I can not do cold rain). But I will get a sleaze ride in this evening to the grocery store. :)

Now to step out of this team's thread...i like the clean look and idea of SS fixie but my legs have a combined age of of over 100 years. Looking at cyclocross bikes that I can adapt fenders to when needed. Might make for a winter commuter summer grinder bike. Yea that's it it is 2 bikes worth of use in one! Easy sell on the SO.

Not yet, we still have 2 team mates that still need to join - Bikewoman and Zuc.
Bikewoman tried but I botched the strava club invite - sorry my mistake. I don't know Zuc and haven't been able to contact yet. I've sent private messages to both on this forum and sent invites by strava.

Sorry but Hozn deleted you both from the Freezing Saddles website - you'll need to re-authorize Strava here http://freezingsaddles.com/authorize

Then you'll have to join the strava club here: http://www.strava.com/clubs/121129

Also - did you know we can post discussions on strava club? There's a link to "discussions" - if you post there all team mates will get notifications.

Please let me know if you need any help - thanks

Riding down Old Glebe, I think; you guys must have just come up 41st St?
