    I once paid a homeless guy in St Marteen $10 to ride his very old jalopy bike (with 2 different pedals and a plastic bag over the seat to hold it together) for 1 mile around a parking lot just to get my sleaze ride in! I’m now at 1320 days of consecutively riding a bike > 1 mile and < 124 in a day!

    I'm assuming you paid him for the use of his bike--you didn't pay him to do the riding? Because if you're bribing some homeless guy to ride a bike for you, we're going to have our very own Freezing Saddles scandal.

    Default Sensational Pointless Prize for Midnight Sleaze Rides!

    Hey, Eddy,
    Not Only are Sleaze Rides an essential component of this game we are playing, I am offering a cherished pointless prize for sleazing in the nick of time before midnight, or just after midnight, to get your ride checked off the list for the day. An extra bonus for the most 2-for rides. See my PAUL Reevere Ride pointless prize thread.
    And keep on sleazing, and eat more doughnuts, too.

    Default A &quot;Sleeze Ride&quot; by any other name?

    And for the record, the “sleaze queen (or king)” is a coveted prize. I enjoyed my reign as Queen.

    Also, a point of clarification: the sleaze leaderboard is for most sleaze DAYS, not sleaze RIDES. So long as you ride a cumulative total of at least 1 but not more than 2 miles a day, you get credit for a sleaze day. But if you ride 3 sleaze “rides” of 1 mile each, you get 13 points for the day but NO credit as a sleaze DAY since you exceeded the 2 mile threshold. Got it or more confused than ever? Well then, welcome to the conundrum/enigma/nonsense that is the wonderful world of Freezing Saddles!

    It makes sense to do it by day rather than ride - for example, on Tuesdays and Thursdays I go to the gym at the crack of dawn before the family is awake. During Freezing Saddles, I CaBi home. It's 0.7 miles. Then, on most Tuesdays and Thursdays, I take the kids to school (5 mile round trip) and pick them up (same). So, yes, I did do a ride that was super short, but that's because it's faster than walking, and those 0.7 miles add up (to maybe 10 miles per year!).
