    Default FNHPP 2018 aka Freezing Saddles First Tracks

    Come join us (me?) at the 3rd annual FNHPP (First Night Hains Point Party). Be among the first to make tracks around Hains Point aka Judd Lumberjackís Hamster Wheel. Details below.

    Meeting Point: Potomac Yard Starbucks (3825-C Jeff Davis Hwy, Alexandria VA)
    Meetup time: 23:30 12/31/2017
    Rollout time: 23:35 12/31/2017
    Arrive Hains Point: just before midnight (anyone not wanting to come to Starbucks can meet us at the east-side loop gate by the golf course)
    Ride laps: 00:00 1/1/2018

    Hope to see yíall out there and kick off BAFS2018!

    I love that BAFS both begins and ends with ill-advised late night laps at Hains Point.

    i think Jon meant to describe them as "totally freakin awesome because Hains Point is the bestest place to bike in the world" laps, but his darn phone erroneously auto-corrected to ill-advised.

    It's not illegal to be there. But whether it's ill advised to be in Freezing Saddles at all may be open to debate.

    Sometimes the gates are closed but some (this is not an admission) have been known to go around them.

    I will not be able to roll out with you guys tonight, but will make an appearance for at least one HP lap after church (appx. 11:30) Because the usual Jan 1 Holy Day falls on a Monday they abrogated the obligation this year, but having a commitment gets me out and into the cold.

    Just curious if anyone is stupid enough...I mean super-excited enough to ride some laps at midnight. I just did my quick test ride in civvies to see how bad it is. Aside from the brain freeze headache from the wind I think itíll be OK. Hope to see some brave souls.

    Since it looks like Iím alone here, I think Iíll drive to HP and do my lap rather than ride over.

    Canít even get Judd to come out? I guess that means I must be batshit crazy. So I guess Iíll ride alone but closer to home.
