    I don't expect points for it, but want to post it here. Last night riding home on the 4MRT, in the (currently) narrow spot near the construction west of Mount Vernon Ave, I was about to pass a runner (I had called my pass). She suddenly shouted "rabbit!" and I braked hard. Turned out it was not a rabbit, but a very fluffy cat, which she picked up. I thanked her for her save, and rode on.

    I'd file that under close calls and incidents or, possibly, missed connections. Unless you're SteveO of course; do we have thread for lost opportunities to run over living things?

    That fluffy cat lives nearby. The cat is exceedingly friendly and unafraid, walks along with her owner almost like a dog, and will approach people.

    There should be a thread for close calls with or missed opportunities to avoid Steve O.

    Darby ate pie. Drank coffee. Did not find the Calvinball. Where is the Calvinball? Why is the Calvinball not filled with treats??

    YES! How about 250 points for fostering? Add an additional 1000 points if the dog/cat ends up being a foster failure.

    * Note, you do not have to ride your bike to get points! But in order to get points, you do have to volunteer or drop off donations (so, you can not just ride there, turn around and get five points).
    **Double points if you go at 7am before coffee club![/LIST]
    How many points for walking dogs you already rescued?

    Seriously, though, I love this pointless prize. Not going to win, but I'll try to make an early riser walk + commute a weekly thing.

    Leaderboard appears to be blank. When tagging, does it need to be in the title of the ride instead of just the description?
