I'll be at the opening HH in January and hope to meet more of you this year.
    Little known fact - if at some point during BAFS you are NOT called crazy by a friend or loved one, we dock your points by 50%.

    That someone would wait until Freezing Saddles, and would sacrifice 3x the annual chances to be so characterized strikes me as, um, what's that word?

    Hello everyone! Iíve been riding bikes for as long as I can remember! Iíve been active in WTF Rides with Rag n Bones in Richmond, Slaughterama, the Lime Connect metric century, Team Not Team, cyclocross and more! I believe more people should switch from cars to bikes to cut down on traffic and save the planet <3 hoping to do Freezing Saddles!!!

    Default Another newbie!

    Hi, I'm Laurel. This will be my first Freezing Saddles!

    I have a very wonky commute that takes me to different public-transit-unfriendly suburban places on different days of the week. Biking to work at least a few days a week has been a huge improvement over sitting in traffic in my car, and I'm hoping that participating in this competition will motivate me to get out on my bike even when it's cold.

    If you're new to the forums, you can get your required first post here, so you don't need to open up a new thread. If you're not new, still feel free to let people know a bit about you (if you'd like).
    Hi, I gave up my car as of October 1 and have been only biking and taking Metro/bus (and occasionally Uber/Lyft) since then. I just bought a Class 1 (no throttle) "Vale Go!" e-bike, "Pearl the Electric Bike" on Instagram , and I would love to participate in Freezing Saddles!

    Default Ready for some cold rides

    Joining blazing saddles to bike more in the winter months. I am more of a runner than a cyclist.

    Thanks for an obvious place to post. This will be my first year. Looking forward to it!

    Default First Freezing Saddles!

    Another newbie to Freezing Saddles! I bike everyday to work but my resilience to the cold has taken a dent this year so looking forward to being challenged by my fellow dedicated bikers.
