    Hi team!

    I'm Amelia. I live in Clermont, Alexandria (aka the Eisenhower Ave Connector or Gates to Narnia, choose your name) and commute to Crystal City. I started bike commuting roughly 2015 and did Freezing Saddles last year on recommendation of a coworker. This is now my 2nd year and I'm determined to not break the streak, even if yesterday I was #2 for sleaze rides.

    Sorry to miss meeting any of you at the happy hour. I'm off to the Bahamas on Saturday to run a half marathon on Sunday (as one does). But don't worry, I've rented a bike for the week so the streak shall live on. I'll be cheersing ya'll from some sunny temps next week.

    Hope to meet more Freezing Saddles folks this year. I didn't meet any last year, though it is tricky when I never really leave the ALX-Arlington Crystal City portion of the WDC area.

    Best from Amelia and Synner (road bike) and Snow Fairy (fat tire hybrid that's been in the basement since November of 2015)

    PS I'm good with Ochooooooooooo but also love Donuts so would The DoOchoooooooooooNuts work or would that confuse people?

    I roll through your neck of the woods on the way to and from work when I bike in (I start at Rose Hill shopping center). I don't know why but Clermont hill followed by Upland feels like a beast sometimes!

    Great conversation fellow 8ers. I love the ďWho 8 My Donut?Ē Moniker but am fine with whatever name gets the most votes.

    Iím really hoping to set up some group rides so we can all meet and ride together. And fir our representative in Germany, weíll find a way to have you represented with us by proxy.

    Iím also planning some ďUnholy AllianceĒ rides where we intentionally ride with other teams for camaraderie and good-spirited competition.

    Iím involved in supporting @Edelweiss with the donut challenge and Iím going to put two challenges out there myself: a whisky challenge and a wine challenge with some rides to establishments that specialize in those libations.

    Looking forward to being teammates with all of you. Now letís get out of there and ride like the wind!

    PS: I just noticed my ride from yesterday (Friday) didnít post but rest assured that I did ride my minimum 3 miles before jumping on a plane. Iíll be sure to sync my Garmin with my phone as soon as I get home this evening and knock out todayís ride too.

    Getting sick has put me in favor of "Ochooooo"
    But something like D'OchoNuts is funny too

    What about Los Ochos Locos (the crazy eights)?

    I like it. Plus, you don't have to count how many o's you put at the end of "Ochooooooooooo".

    Perhaps we could keep the donut theme going with the donut bike pic on our Strava team picture?
