    Yeah, I agree with this.

    What, my weight (as opposed to the bicycle's) doesn't count? I was assuming that would move me way up in the rankings!

    Bike + rider + everything attached. If it was just the bike, you'd have too much advantage

    Boss? (aka they guy in control of the tech Hozn)

    What did you decide about the individual leaderboard? Wear you gonna nix it? I always thought it was my favorite graph - sorta proved what a silly thing the whole thing was. Anyway the reason I ask is it looks like a few people from work are registering for FS. Thus I was thinking about having our own Pointless Prize side wager based on the fellow employee who scores the most points.

    No, the best is the chart showing total distance versus total climbing. That is silly sick!

    Default Blah blah blah

    Arrgh,

    The competition hasn't even started, and I already have a headache from just reading this one post.

    Personally, I think the 10 pts (or whatever it is you decide) per ride (sleaze points) are bogus. Just go out and ride your bike for the fun of it and enjoy yourself. And if you start to add social points, that really doesn't work for people who aren't able to get their ass out of bed to made those Oh Dark Thirty coffee clubs.

    Oh, and I do like the idea of the distance vs. climbing chart. I'm all for that!!

    All rules bias the game in one way or another. Originally, this was a game by a community of daily commuters. The 10 points a day kicker biases the scoring towards daily riding - commuters. Thus a cyclist who rode its bike everyday could score better than a spandex king who did centuries on the weekend. This was modeled after the LEague of American Bicycles National Bike Challenge that has a similar scoring system - again, specifically designed to favor the daily rider over the rider that can pound miles.
