    White Grass asks that when you are snow shoeing, you not walk in the groomed x-country ski grooves but walk to the side instead, so they probably don't want bikes churning up those grooves. Races may be different from everyday use. Their page mentions their snowshoe request but does not mention bikes, but they're really laid back so it wouldn't hurt to ask. They might say it's okay but just to stay out of the grooves.

    Here is a fun article about the fat bike race as White Grass last winter, complete with pics:

    Default Prize for most time spent registering? ; )

    Am I really here? I've spent over two hours (over the last few weeks) trying to get logged into the Forum so I can officially participate in the 2018 Freezing Saddles. Is there a prize for being so stupid and stubborn just to enter a winter bicycling competition suffer-fest?

    Thanks for your help, Carol and Henry!

    We did get snow between 11 pm last night and 1 am this morning, a little stuck on car windshields, but no where else. Then this morning there was a snow shower while we were in Wiesbaden, again, nothing stuck and I was in the car, not on the bike. I'm still hopeful that i can ride while it i snowing on Sunday.

    Default happy to be back

    Hi gang,

    After freezing my saddle in 2015, I missed registering last year and was so sad. Glad I got my act together and I look forward to riding with you all through the best weather we get around here. Or something like that.

    Default Hi!

    Hello! My name is Krista and I'm hoping to join Freezing Saddles this year. I live in Ballston and commute to grad school at Georgetown U by bike (it's so much faster than driving or public transit). I also like to ride for fun. Cheers

    i'm not much of an internet forum person, but jrenaut (husband) has let me know that my registration for BAFS won't be accepted if i don't post. jrenaut probably posts enough for the two of us, anyway.

    looking forward to my third year of freezing saddles and beerneuring.
