    Default Team 4 The Delicate Snowflakes of Doom

    Hi, this is Jeff, bad but nevertheless esteemed captain. I and reluctant elf doggie welcome you to Team 4's main social page. Please bookmark this thread for info on social rides, as well as complaints, questions, concerns, encouragement, advice, and so on.

    Please join this club: https://www.strava.com/clubs/335178 if and only if you're a member of this team.

    My goals for this year are to ride safe, avoid crashes and illness, have lots of fun rides, including cooperative rides with teams 5 and 6 (and perhaps others) who share our main ride region, which is DC northward and eastward into northern Prince Geo's county and eastern Montgomery. I ride mostly out of Proteus bike shop so I will frequently be mentioning those social rides for our mutual pleasure.

    Apologies in advance for my bad captaincy -- I will be on vacation and pretty much out of bike range from Jan 20 to Feb 3. So I'll be asking others to please volunteer to coordinate rides and bike-oriented fun times.

    Thanks, and Welcome!

    Team 7 also volunteers for cooperative rides (I volunteer them). We seem to be lately congregated in PG County with a few here and there in MoCo. See you all at the Proteus rides

    Ricky here. I haven't had a haircut in 4+ years, make memes/work from home in College Park, don't own a road bike, and like jumping over cylindrical objects, big and small. I won't pack on a lot of miles, but I'll try to be consistent. Hope to meet the rest of you Delicate Snowflakes soon!

    howdy team, i'm jon. i live and work in rockville, so i'll be up here most of the time, though i should be able to make my way to a couple group rides with you fine folks. i'm going to be out on a cruise from january 25-30, but i'm going to try to hunt down some way to ride on the days that we're on land. i'm really hoping someone brings a folding bike on the ship and i can ride it around deck a couple times, but i kind of doubt that'll happen.

    The other Jeff here.

    I live near Wheaton, and work near the White Flint Metro. I'm also running the #survivor pointless prize.
    2017 was my return to the bike after being put in the ICU by a car in August 2016. Even with that I was able to ride over 1000 miles in 2016. This will be my second dip into the insanity of Freezing Saddles.

    My goal is two commute days a week. At least one sleaze ride on one of the non-commute days, and one weekend/group ride every fortnight.

    Hope to meet the rest of you on the road soon!

    I'm Patty. I live in Silver Spring and work in DC. I am a competitive cyclist (on the Colavita team) but mostly a commuter who loves to ride. I commute to work every day and haven't missed a day in 6+ years. This is my first time doing Freezing Saddles. Happy to be on your team!

    Hey all -

    I'm Eric and I live and work in College Park and I regularly ride out of the Proteus shop. This is my first freezing saddles, and my first time riding through the winter. I commute to work at least one day a week and I'm looking to get out as often as I can. I'm looking forward to group rides and meeting you all.

    I think all agree Ricky should get double miles on the dirt and bonus for the socks.
