    Arrow Wiggle Lord pointless prize

    Wiggle Lord the pointless prize


    Your mission is to ride the wiggliest ride of Freezing Saddles 2018
    Your prize will be pointless, and possibly a custom bike arlington forum title

    A wiggly ride for our purposes here is one that maximizes block-by-block direction changes while minimizing repeatedly going over or crossing the same stretch of road.
    We realize sometimes you get stuck in cul de sacs and dead ends, so we will be a little flexible about that when judging your wiggle, but too much repetition may lead to disqualification.


    Please use this thread to post your entries.
    A link to the ride is necessary.
    A screenshot of the route to share with your fellow wiggle enthusiasts would be nice.

    according to strava's route builder this ride had 306 steps which is around 10 route changes per mile.

    LOL!

    So street riding only, i.e., no dirt or mountain biking?

    It's kind of difficult to easily quantify routes that are off-road via strava, but I'll delve into something mountain bikey that is really impressive and lacking repeating laps if it looks to be in contention.

    *It's just a lot funnier to me if you're doing it in the city/burbs*

    I agree, but I just imagined someone going in a big field or parking lot and doing zig zags or doughnuts.

    Laurel Hill. I wish I had a GPS track from when I did some racing at Lodi Farm. It was insanely tight and twisty.

    EDIT: Found one on Strava. Not as twisty as I remember, but we used to do a night race there and I ran out of light. Try doing that in the dark... on a rigid fixie mountain bike
