    It's all Greenbelt's fault. One year, he decided to be a Slacker. At that time, the Slackers appeared on the leaderboard as if they were another team. Greenbelt rode so many miles that the...

    Let me start by emphasizing I am not in charge of anything besides registration. This post has a whole long list of who is in charge of what, and you will notice my name is on it only with respect...

    I'm glad it was easy for you. We try to make it that way, consistent with getting the information and permissions we need. But do you even want to know how many people in past years have found it...

    Just to give you fair warning: The registration form is now up (although it has not yet been publicized). So if this is not resolved quickly, it will be too late to collect the information.

    I don't mind adding the wacky sign-ups to the registration form, but I suspect it would complicate obscurerichard's job on the back end. I'd take this one up with him directly.

    Sorry, but I won't be there. Riding around in circles by myself isn't exactly what I consider fun. And the fun parts--getting together with people, sharing "lemonade," etc.--are the least safe...
