    Nice!!! I assume this would affect snowiest/rainiest ride data too?

    There is a pause button... or we could double points for #kidical rides. Or whatever.

    The concept (as I imagined it) is if you are stopping a ride then you are going inside and therefore get some...

    A lot of the same names, of course, but as you say, some notable jumps between placings. Matt H, Pete B, Michael P for example all jump up quite a bit - all regular AM commuters, I think.

    I think there is actually an "average temperature" per ride in the database that could be incorporated quite easily, but as a first run I didn't want too many variables or too complex a query. One of...

    Haha, glad to hear it. I love it too, but figured most folks wouldn't want any rides to be negatively scored. Obviously we could take it even further and move it closer to 40F but 40F in windy rainy...

    Hi folks,

    You may have a noticed a new "Freeze Points" graph under the Individual (Various) leaderboards. This is a sort of experimental metric that's intended to capture the spirit of riding...

    True, but a set route subjects you to whatever conditions are on that route (hills, wind, precip, traffic, etc.) and you have to navigate as well. With easy trail riding you can just zone out,...

    I imagine Kurt Searvogel's number is north of 200, although I guess it depends on how you count a ride day, especially since he would also change bikes (to a recumbent).

    I think these all have fairly straightforward solutions.

    1. Someone who can't bike any more, or are quitting out of their own volition. So - very different from someone crashing and riding on. I...

    From my perusal of http://rusa.org/brvreg.html I think you just need a helmet, since it's not a night/low-light ride. Rod/David will probably have a definitive answer.

    Especially since our 12th place rider is also injured and out with a broken thumb (?) I think.

    If I can make the ride I will be there well before 9am for registration and for the 9am departure. I'll likely be riding to/from the start/finish as it's not too far from where I live.

    Best part of having injury in winter is being ready and refreshed for the spring rides! Hopefully!
