    I am not participating this year, and therefore sponsorship of a Strava Art prize is up for grabs.

    I'd been wondering about that. I'm happy to take over responsibility for offering the Strava Art prize. I'll post a new thread soon.

    Komorebi awarded the Strava Art prize to herself in a ceremony held earlier today.

    Haha. I'd been planning to take myself out of the running if Allan C sponsored the art competition this year, but this works out better. I can't promise that this year's prize will be as cool as the ones that Allan C offered in the past, though.

    Thanks Bob! The nice thing is because I'm now a Fed, I'll be able to know whether HQ was snow-shuttered from a hemisphere away!

    Default London Bridge Prize

    This is the prize you DON’T want to win: the one for the most/worst crashes. Hopefully there won’t be any recipients this year.
    We call it the London Bridge Prize, or… for Bruce fans, the “I’m goin’ down” prize. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fdZWbIsrFk

    I came up with this prize a few winters ago after “winning” it myself.

    If you crash, you can share the gory details on the FS London Bridge thread (we will use the thread from prior years). If you like, you can also designate the hashtag #fs2019londonbridge in your ride title.

    Be safe, everyone. w&w

    Sponsoring the Metro Peak Pioneer prize: http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showth...894#post184894

    I don't think anything needs to be done? The #bafsmetro hashtag populates itself on the freezing saddles site eventually?

    This url: https://freezingsaddles.org/pointless/hashtag/bafsmetro will show you anyone who uses that hashtag. I can make it an actual menu item if you want, and if that isn't showing the way you want it to, let me know and i can probably accommodate.

    I'm offering a (to be determined) pointless prize for the most number of tandem rides (either as a captain or stoker). The hashtag will be: #FS2019tandem. If we need a tie-breaker, the prize will go to the person who rode the longest tandem rides.

    You can ride a tandem that you already own, borrow, or rent, in the DC region, or elsewhere. You can also join the Metro Washington Association of Blind Athletes (MWABA) on our rides. The MWABA rides will probably take place on a weekend once or twice a month, generally starting from Eastern Market or Bethesda on the Anacostia Trail, Capital Crescent, or other destinations to be determined. Here's an article about MWABA's rides: https://www.railstotrails.org/trailb...-on-dc-trails/

    I'll start a separate thread where you can get extra credit for posting photos from your tandem rides, and where I'll post information about upcoming MWABA rides. Or you can sign up for the MWABA e-mail list https://gomwaba.org/volunteer-with-us/

    Shira

    P.S. do I need to do anything else for the hashtag to create a leaderboard for this?
