    You're welcome, Mary! Sorry I wasn't home when you came by. I was out for a ride. But glad you were able to pick up your prize(s). And hope they provide some added motivation to ride!

    Freezing Saddles Lanterne Rouge

    This was an unannounced prize that I created. For those who don't know what the Lanterne Rouge is:

    Steve O and I were discussing scoring a little bit last night at HH. What if points were a function of miles, days ridden, and riding time? The idea that actual riding time (presumably in the cold)...

    We could create an algorithm so that points are a function of:

    - Miles
    - Temperature
    - Elevation

    I agree with Steve O. As someone who's raced and run a race team, FS isn't about ability as much as it is about motivation/desire. The frontrunner teams don't have the "best" riders; they simply have...

    We can make that part of the registration process and create #TeamAntiSocial. :)

    Also, if people are actually intentionally riding less because of FS mileage cap ... IMHO that sounds like a personal problem. I would like to think that we all ride our bikes because we like/love...

    Yes, ride days are a BIG DEAL. I was a team captain last year and tried my best to motivate folks to ride every day (even if it was just a sleaze ride) because those first 10 points can make a big...

    All,

    I've asked Steve O if he could compile how the team standing would've changed if there was no mileage cap. Hopefully, he'll be able to report back at the HH next week. Stand by for the...

    Actually, the missing word is "most." Sorry to disappoint you.

    Coffee is more important than miles. :)

    I can't speak to the sidepath, but have ridden on the road on Jeff Todd without any issues. Two very wide lanes so plenty of space for cars to get around you. Mount Vernon Hwy becomes Jeff Todd...

    The only public entrance, i.e., where you can get in without a CAC or retired military ID, is the Tulley Gate. Once in, you can exit through any gate.

    How is it like J-walking if the cars on Mount Vernon have a red light in both directions? But even if it is, that's how I'd ride it.

    FWIW, I prefer to ride safe(ly) even if it's not legal. And...
