Greetings BAFS2016 Team 18!!!!!

Here's our kickoff thread. Join this Strava group: https://www.strava.com/clubs/175425

We'll come up with a name that embodies our team after everyone has joined. Check in here with a quick note once you've done that so I can compare and make sure we've got everyone.

I'm looking forward to a fun, cold, awesome BAFS2016!

So our team name is "Autocorrect", right?

Hello teammates!

Sorry I can't contribute much at the moment but will pitch in when I can!

You are all aware of Boomer's physical ailments, aren't you?

Please keep an eye on him and don't let him ride in the cold. His poor, debilitated circulatory system can't handle the damp weather and it affects his extremities. ;)

Fixed that one too. Funny, when I was changing it, autocorrect suggested "bilk mako" this time.

Hi Team 18ers! Looks like most but not all of us have joined our happy Strava team. If you haven't joined yet, please do so as soon as you can. We still need a name (I like dasgeh's "Team Autocorrect" suggestion), an avatar, and all that jazz. Looking forward to a create winter biking season (as I sit here in sunny FLA sipping a mango margarita on the beach). Go Team 18!

Dear Team,

I know that this is late notice, but I invite any and all to join me for an impromptu ride this afternoon @ 4pm from the East Falls Church Metro station, heading west on the WOD, to the Caboose Brewery in Vienna, to collect some beerneuring points (http://www.washingtonareabikeforum.com/showthread.php?t=9709) ...and the 1st NFL wildcard playoff game! There will be an optional ride around the Reston Lakes loop (Audubon and Thoreau) at halftime (to burn off calories so that we can drink more beer). This will be a no drop ride, unless you keel over, at which point I will escort you to the nearest Metro (Orange/Silver line), and turn you in to the WMATA authorities.

P.S.
Please pay no mind to Powerful Pete. He can become unstable. I pity his unsuspecting teammates that know not what contagens their leader harbors...

Joined. I'll be out of commission traveling in Germany from the 14th through 20th. Should be a sneak in a ride pre and post trip but am not sure how much I'll be riding while I'm away .....

If people don't sign up promptly, you can PM me with forum names to get real names, e-mail addresses, and Strava links for them.

Here are some other meme's I found for our Team avatar:

10436104371043810439

I'm assuming the first one is tad bit too vulgar but the others might work.

Also funny how the second one does bear a striking resemblance to Powerful Pete. :cool:

Team 18, Boomer2U is one of my BFFs, but let me warn you that he is a silly man who should not be listened to. It's cold and ugly outside, so don't ride... Relax :)

Pay no mind to Sarah Bee; she is under the influence of Powerful Pete. Both are ferocious competitors, and will stop at nothing to gain an edge for their competing teams. Just keep on riding.

Nah, ELFMAN tried to register with his own forum name. I will not say what happened to him. ;-)

Here's an idea for a nice ride the Yeam (Team!) can do on Saturday: https://www.facebook.com/events/188005448214168/

This is the Port City Pedals & Pints Short Ride. It's a relaxed 10-some mile ride from the Brewery along Holmes Run. When you finish, there's beer! You can knock out a Beernuering entry too.

I'm planning to ride and will be doing my usual pre-ride carboloading at Best Buns around 9, rolling to Port City from there around 10. Sign up on FB if you'd like to do the ride and feel free to join me at BB for the ride over.

Shouldn't you wait to get to the brewery before carboloading?

Regrets as I have a dentist appointment Sat morn, even though I'd rather bike and brew.

You can always meet us at the brewery after your appointment for some beerneuring.

My apologies to my awesome Team Autocorrect teammates. I just started a new job I the wilds of Columbia MD so I've been working like a dog and---gasp!---driving to work everyday. I'm still Sleazing every night before bedtime but certainly not doing much more. We still need to have a team Meetup ride/happy hour so please let me know what might work for you on a weekend. Keep riding and go Team Autocorrect!!!!
