    Same colo(u)r whatever it is. I like the idea of something with a light like the suggested longer slap band with LED and would be willing to pay the higher cost.

    Do I see a recumbent in your future? If so, where are your beard and pipe?

    Wait - was he on the cover of this month's Canadian Cycling magazine giving training tips for the "off-season" (whatever that is)?

    My vote: reflective ear tags. They would be both safe and fashionable, plus they'd be an easy way to mark which team one is on.

    I know I'm going to confuse the heck out of everyone in Seattle ("What's Freezing Saddles? It doesn't freeze here. You're dumb... ...can I buy one of those from you?")

    Here's the site I came across when randomly searching for reflective tags: https://www.cckoutfitters.com/blogs/...-and-livestock (Warning: the first half of the video at the end of the article is strangely intense with graphic livestock injuries; skip to :50 to avoid them)

    Cycling snowplows! They can be neon green I suppose... $50 and a LOT of jury-rigging to set them up.

    I only wish something like that was available commercially. First snow day could be spent plowing the CCT.

    As it is, I'll just have to stick with my tire chains.

    So that means we'll be dumping a lot of the snow next to your front door, right?

    Reminder to everyone who hasn't weighed in yet -- please vote or post a suggestion in this thread today. Based on the survey responses so far, I'm inclined to go with the same zipper pulls as last year, in green. Zipper pulls in other colors wouldn't be as distinctive -- e.g., BikeArlington has zipper pulls in blue and pink, and Alexandria's DASH has yellow ones. But there's still time to bribe me with cookies to get me to change my mind.
