    I despise coffee (but I do love my Diet Mt. Dew), and I prefer as little interaction with other humans as possible. (Sorry...It's been a rough year with the election and stuff that I prefer to avoid people if I can).
    I know. I'm not the type of people you are looking for, but I like to ride by bike (assuming it's dry).

    Oh yeah. And I don't like waking up at 4:30 am to do dumb bike stuff!!
    There are lots of other pointless prizes. Like wearing your swim suit. You might find pursuing that one to be better by yourself than in a group.

    That is what darkness, bushes and trees are are for. It also confuses the local fauna.

    I thought that was the most BAFS way to get there!

    "Reclusive Misanthrope" would be a great team name.

    How the heck are we going to make our miles if we let a little dark and rain stop us? Says the person who way too often is leaving the office and biking home after midnight. (Rain not guaranteed, but it doesn't stop me when it happens.)

    I do recommend many lights and reflectors if you do this, however. Personally I've got three tail lights, two headlights, 5 wheel lights, a helmet with lights front and back plus turn signals, an ANSI class 2 reflective vest, and numerous reflectors on the bicycle itself.

    Social Butterfly #1 - BAFS2017 Happy Hour

    Possibly the easiest to pick up, but oh well. Couldn't walk (waddle?) 3 feet in my penguin costume without running into a friend who happened to be on another team. No matter! Met a new crew for this year's team 19, with the pics and Strava to prove it:

    I believe we're being photobombed by Ed (inadvertently) and Steve (advertently), showing the multi-team spirit of the event!

    Also, Strava or it didn't happen.

    Even though I can not win my own prize, I just wanted to point out that Team 10 had EIGHT members at the Happy Hour!
