    I think this is a good idea and assuming we try doing it this year, just remember that we're not guaranteeing that everyone who wants to be on a "local" team will be able to be on one. A lot will...

    My example (actually provided by Steve O) does not include 10 extra ride day points. We could do that or not. Although my opinion is that it's really no longer necessary since the first mile of the...

    Nadine,

    Sorry if I was confusing. The "first list" is how many points you earn for each mile. The "second list" is just an example of the total points you would earn based on how many miles you...

    This is being discussed by "the powers that be" as a possible change to the scoring system. A "declining points" system (Steve O cites Bob James as the originator) whereby:

    How soon would you start dropping riders from teams? After the first week? Two weeks? Would you drop a rider who has previously met the minimum but then doesn't in a subsequent week?

    The idea of a "casual" team(s) is an interesting one. How would you define a casual rider in terms of weekly rides/mileage?

    - Temperature
