    Exclamation We're up to 200 registrations!

    Given that the limit is going to be 250, any of you who have been procrastinating should register now.

    Hello, I am a first timer Freezing Saddles. I ride a out 100 miles a week during the winter, and am the owner of every warm cycling accouterment ever made.

    However, I realized that between 1 January and April I will be out of the country for 3weeks total, unable to cycle.

    I certainly want to support my team.

    Do you suggest I withdraw my registration?

    Thanks,

    Hi Jessica,

    I'm not sure what the organizers will suggest, BUT, if you keep up your 100 miles/week while you're here, you'll put up plenty of points. 2 years ago I was away for all of January and half of February so I decided not to join FS. I put in a lot of miles when I got back and I ended up near the 40th percentile for points, despite missing half the competition. Sure, it would be really tough to break the top 100 riders, but don't under-estimate the number of slackers as well.

    Hi,
    I would be happy to have a player like you on the team I'll be on. There are a fair few participants who have travel obligations and other distractions that reduce their FS mileage and daily riding aims. If you are likely to put in high mileage when you are in town, then I think most of the captains would welcome you.
    I will suggest, depending on where you are going, that you can beg, borrow, or rent a bike and get some sleeze rides in. Many FS participants have used BikeShares, friend's bikes, or done "Test Rides" at destination bike shops to get their mile(s) in. I have done all of the above, and managed to be a daily rider despite traveling every year.
    Good Luck! e
