    Default Team 10 - Bollard Busters

    Freezing Saddles 2020 Bollard Busters team thread (team 10)

    Congratulations Team 10 members. This is our thread. As tradition dictates, Steve O's team is named Bollard Busters.
    This allows us to avoid the agony of the FS2015 Team 5 naming debacle. You're welcome.

    Introduce yourself. I look forward to freezing with you.

    Hi I'm Pete, and I like to ride my bike every day. This is my second year of FS. Most of my riding is commuting, often towing a 6-year old to school in a Weehoo on the way to work. I also have a 9-month old, but hope to participate in group rides when I can. I recognize Judd and Steve O from DRT events, but I don't think I've actually met either of you or the other team members in person. Looking forward to it!

    Way to go, everyone. Looks like we're all in the Strava club now.

    As way of introduction, I'm Steve O, your "captain." I've been involved in Freezing Saddles from the very beginning and look forward to the reindeer games every year.
    I ride my bike everywhere, as I do not own a car. Most of my riding is either transportation or social/recreational, although some people claim they saw me on a cyclocross track once or twice.
    I very much enjoy bringing people into our fun community of cyclists, and I look forward to meeting those of you I don't already know in the near future.

    Hi Steve O! Hi Judd! I'm Billy and this is my 4th time doing FS. Like Pete, I have a little one (11 month old daughter), so I have to work in my riding around her, but I'll still get out as much as I can and try and join some group/social rides. I am mostly on my road bike, but have a gravel and mtb as well. I moved from Arlington to Ashburn last June, but it's not a problem to get into and around the DC area to join up for some rides.

    Hi everyone!

    Iím Judd. This is my 5th Freezing Saddles. I was captain of the winning team in 2017 and 5th overall on the individual leaderboard. Iím nearing a 4 year streak of riding a bike every single day but my miles were way down the past two years due to a nagging injury.

    I just started bike commuting regularly again. I also bike a lot for transportation, do bike tours and race a few times a year. I enjoy silly themed rides with friends or just meeting up for coffee.

    Iím heavily involved in bike advocacy as a board member for WABA, Alexandria BPAC member and co-founder of the Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail.

    Glad to see Billy and Steve O on the team, both of whom are friends because of Freezing Saddles. Good to meet Pablo last night and hoping to meet EasyRider and everyone else in person soon.

    Hi Steve,

    I'm introducing myself. I'm Lynn S. on the leaderboardThis, and LynnScho on login. This is my first time doing Freezing Saddles. I look forward to meeting the team.

    I believe I signed in appropriately to show up on the team. If I haven't, will you let me know? I've been biking like crazy, and want it to count!

    Lynn

    And if you want to get up a little earlier, the usual Monday morning coffee club will be meeting at Swing's on Monroe St. in Alexandria, departing there about 8:30 to go get pancakes at Mike's.

    Coffee, then some FS miles, then pancakes. What better way to spend your holiday?
