    Default Pointless Prize Thread

    Hi all! It's time for the funnest part of Freezing Saddles, the Pointless Prizes. These are fun activities - both crazy and mundane - that add a little something extra to the winter riding experience.

    First of all, anyone can sponsor a prize - you can sponsor a prize, your friend who isn't playing can sponsor a prize, even your mom can sponsor a prize. Second, Pointless Prizes can be about anything! They can be objective (like most miles ridden on New Years Day), they can be subjective (like Sock Game). They can be embarrassing (like rider with the most falls) and they can be heartwarming (Bike Samaritans, helping others in need). Check out last year's thread for more examples.

    List of Pointless Prizes (updated 12/8/19)

    Coffee Rides (chuxtr) - Visit different coffee places on your bike #FS2020coffeeride
    Sock Competition (Jessica) - Best socks No hashtag
    Loopy for Arlington (bentbike33) - Completing the most Arlington Loops No hashtag
    Points per Mile (chuxtr) - Highest ratio of points per mile No hashtag
    Maximum Smugness Points (epilsk) - Ride every day, feel smug about the hardships you've endured No hashtag

    I will once again organize the FS Photo Clever Caption competition

    And some yet-to-be-determined PPs related to Steve O's Crazy idea scoring system.
