    The incident must have kept you off the bike for some time last calendar year.

    Most miles wins...something. Currently thinking of an origami wheelchair.
    And something else to be decided later.
    How long is "some time"? Does it count if I crashed while mountain biking and broke my wrist, but still did a 207 mile gravel race 8 weeks later?
    I was literally "off the bike" for about 26 hours before I did my first splinted sleaze ride.

    You have to love how people are already trying to game Pointless Prizes even before Freezing Saddles starts!

    Note to everyone who needs a leaderboard based on a hashtag - if you point your browser to https://freezingsaddles.com/pointles...ag/somehashtag (not yet because it hasn't been pushed to prod but soon), you'll get a leaderboard for every ride for a participating member that has #somehashtag in the title.

    Only letters and numbers are allowed. And it's case-sensitive, so make sure if your hashtag is SteveORules that no one is using steveorules or they won't get counted. And note that while you have to include the # in your ride title (ie Morning Ride #wowthisisalongexplanation), you do NOT include the hashtag in the url (ie https://freezingsaddles.com/pointles...ongexplanation).

    Default Pointless Prizes So Far

    Here is the first cut at the list of 2018 Pointless Prizes declared so far, along with brief descriptions thereof. Quite a few of these require further definition by their sponsor; I encourage the sponsors to provide the details soon. I have also provided a list of some Pointless Prizes from last year which haven't yet been sponsored for this year. If you're itching to offer a Pointless Prize but haven't come up with any ideas, please feel free to re-use one of last year's ideas.

    I'll once again sponsor the award for the most Hains Point laps, with a new twist. Any laps completed on January 1, 2018 will count as double laps!
