    Question Noob Question - Do I need to add a # all Strava rides?

    First time for BAFS - do I need to add a hashtag to every ride on Strava for it to be logged? And to confirm, is that hashtag #bafs2021? And do I put that in the title, cor comments, or what? Yeah I know that I can add other hashtags for the other prizes, but I am befuddled by technology so just want to get one thing right. Thanks...

    No # needed. Just ride!

    We use #s for side games like you noted.

    Do we need to add the hashtags in Strava in the ride title only? Or will the # in the photos captions and descriptions count toward the leaderboards?
    This is my first time doing Freezing Saddles.

    The website only reads the titles, so any game-related hashtag needs to be in the ride title.

    As others have said, no.

    I tend to add a #BAFS2021 hashtag to my rides just so that I can mark them for myself and so that if I wanted to later write a program to sort through my rides by hashtag I could.

    No need to write your own program - a buddy of mine already did it - https://www.zashtags.com/
