I started a Strava racing team for us. If you have ideas about what we should name our team and what image we can use for a team logo please offer your suggestions here or in a discussion on the Strava team page. I named us "Team Two" and selected a picture with sun and snow in it for our team image but we can change these. https://www.strava.com/clubs/121093

Thanks, Rod! I'll put on my thinking (drinking?) cap and work on name ideas. In the meantime, I'll add myself to the strava team.

Great! it was nice to meet you at the party and Audrey and Ken. Everyone on our team is a newby to this online community except Ken and me. Welcome! I think you'll like it here. Nice smart people. Passionate about bikes, some real hardcore riders. It was a contest like this one that led to me joining the forum a few years ago.

Hey team! It was grand to meet some of you on Friday. And thanks Rod for being our captain on this heroic journey... Clearly, we got this. Hope to meet everyone else in the coming weeks.

Ok and now it's time for me to eat a bagel and then get some miles in today.

Thinking of sun-themed team names in the meantime...

Hi all! Just joined the strava club. Looking forward to a good winter full of riding! Will try to brainstorm some names in the meantime too

Hi Erin! Welcome to our awesome team! You also need to join the BikeArlington's Strava club http://www.strava.com/clubs/bikearlington and authorize Freezing Saddles access to your data http://freezingsaddles.com/authorize before you will show up on the leaderboard and your points added to our total.

Actually, no need to join BikeArlington Strava club now that we have real team clubs. The BA club was used to get everyone on to the leaderboard before we had the other clubs. Of course, it doesn't hurt -- and is probably a generally good idea!

Hi Erin! Welcome to team 2 - the best team (of course). Hopefully we'll all be able to meet in person as a team sometime soon. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing your adventures in Strava! :)

Here's a stream-of-consciousness list of ideas for a team name...it doesn't necessarily have to involve the use of "two" or "sun", right? Although that certainly gives us somewhere to start with for ideas...

Here's what I came up, although I'm pretty bad at this sort of thing, so no pressure to pick any of these: Two for the Snow (i.e. one for the money, two for the show), Winter is Coming, Wheel Friends, Ride Like the Winded, Abominable Cyclists, It's (Not) Always Sunny in DC, Oh Snow You Didn't!...if I can manage to come up with any more, I'll post again later. :)

Hey everyone! Glad to be joining the team, but sorry to say that I'm heading out of town on a business trip this week so I'll be off to a slow start. I'll see if I can flag down a cyclist in Pittsburgh and borrow their bike for a little while...

Edited: Pittsburgh has bike share! I'm in.

Awesome! Is bikeshare something you would use on a business trip otherwise or has Freezing Saddles inspired you to try that?

I had similar concerns about a February work trip to Phoenix that I have (yes, I know...life is tough), but it looks like they also have a bike share program - awesome!

Hi Rod, I think I set the registration up, but let me know if there's anything else I need to do. Thanks!

I like Abominable Cyclists! I know it doesn't have the sun in it, but it's got a lovely ironic ring to it.

Or, Abominable Snowcyclists?

Also, Rod's observation on our strava team page about the makeup of our team made me think of another one... Two Sons, Lotta Ladies!

I like the Abominable Snowcyclists too!

Awesome you got two and son in there. I think women should get top billing though. Browsing around I learn Yeti "commonly used by the people indigenous to the region" but a different name metoh-kangmi (man-bear, snowman) was used by Sherpas from which "Newman mistranslated the word "metoh" as "filthy", substituting the term "abominable", perhaps out of artistic license."

Yeti Betties and the Abominable Two?

There is a female mountain biking team named Yeti Beti so the name is stolen but I think OK to use?

Hahahaha, I can't stop laughing at this one... I think that means it's a winner. :)

Freezing saddles is definitely the inspiration - and I'll finally be out of meetings tomorrow afternoon to give it a try.
