Throwing another idea in the ring.
 Get the list of final results from this year: https://freezingsaddles.org/leaderboard/individual_text
 Chunk it out into groups of 10, starting #110, #1120, #2130, etc.
 The middle team's points are 1 mile = 1 point
 The top team's points are 1 mile = .1 point
 The last team's points are 1 = 10 points
 All the inbetween teams are scaled on that
See, that was easy
PS  how the hizzity did I end up in 4th place? That ain't right.

How would that work for new participants?

Well, if we wanted to really make it fare, we could just spin the Wheel of Morality for every day you ride your bike, and whatever it lands on  that's your points for the day. For days you dont ride, you are deduced the number of points for the number of the day of the month that it is. If the temperature is below ten degrees, then you are scored on a logarithmic scale. If the temperature is above 70, then you are in Australia and your points dont count anyway. We can start with a handicap. Something like your number of posts to the forum  and you dont get any points until your miles exceeds the number of posts you have made. Top riders will be clumped together and told to go Everesting on Sisyphus Hill.

It doesn't, and it's a terrible idea

No, no, no. Just trying to help you iron out the wrinkles.

I propose that a small group of longtime participants  a cabal, if you will  gets together nightly. We review each ride and assign points based on how many points we want to assign. All of RCannon's rides are worth 10 unless he involved a puppy. Bob James gets one point for each 500 miles. Rides to breweries get 100 bonus points.

I’m probably not playing this year, but this system would pull me back in.

Does the counter even work any more? Ah.... apparently it does.
