Hello everyone!

Looking forward to my second BAFS - last year I was on the mighty Team 5 (Who must not be named).

I live in central Arlington & typically commute daily into DC (about 12 miles roundtrip) -- I usually go through Fort Myer and across the Memorial bridge. I work down near 12th SW & Maine Avenue (near where they're building the Wharf waterfront development). I try to ride at least some on the weekends, but w/ family, etc. those are rarely anything longer than an Arlington loop or maybe an out-and-back to Vienna Inn for breakfast. Last year's BAFS, I rode every day but 1... that decision not to put in just one lousy mile on January 8th, 2015 still bugs me. (There is no shame in sleaze rides... in fact they are essential to staying up in the rankings)

I am game for group rides and team happy hours. Last year we had a great time tackling some of the side bets as a team.

Go team 7!

Just so you know, Team 14 is twice as good as Team 7!

Hi everyone!

This is my 2nd BAFS (last year, I was a Doozy Dozer on team 12), and now that I've heard there are many more teams (20?) than last year's, the competition will surely ramp up a bit and be more exciting. Of course, my goal is to just get out there, enjoy the snow/cold, enjoy the freezing rain/sleet/ice a bit less, get a lot of use out of my balaclava, and hopefully do some rides with you all.

I live in Alexandria (Mark Center area) and commute into Arlington (Ballston area) daily which is about 11 miles roundtrip if I don't factor in additional miles from errands and such. GB and I actually work at the same company but live in opposite directions (W&OD-wise). My bike is my only method of transportation save for walking, so other than a trip to Florida in February (annual visit to hang out with family), I likely will ride all but 4 or 5 days of the competition.

Lastly, we need a name for our team. I'll throw out my idea: Slushy Mushers

The "seven" theme ought to give us some good options...

Lucky 7

There are 7:
Dwarfs (or dwarves if you prefer the Tolkein spelling)
Wonders of the World
Deadly Sins

I like the humble Team 7 "Wonders of the World" or "Team 7 Samurai" but am also good with Slushy Mushers or anything else really.

I am definitely not getting into another 32 page naming thread (http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showthread.php?8024-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B%26%2365038%3B-%26%239829%3B-6) that's fought to a draw.

For Strava club, suggest "Team 7 - BAFS2016", though I think we'll need another thread/poll to decide a naming convention that also suggests how to add the "creative" name.
