    Default #HeroesWorkHere Pointless Prize

    Being that this is the year of the Freezing Saddles COVID edition, I would like add a COVID related pointless prize called #HeroesWorkHere

    Rules:

    1. Ride your bike a least a mile to any place that has a sign that contains "heroes" or "thank you." These could be "Heroes Work Here" or "Not all heroes wear capes".

    2. As we know, heroes can by anywhere. It could be a hospital, school, grocery store, or a police station as long as it has the sign

    3. Take a picture of the sign with the location in the background and post in this thread. If you like, you can add a little description about the location

    4. Hashtag your ride #HeroesWorkHere on Strava if you'd like to add to the pointless prize leaderboard

    5. May add some locations in the future for bonus points that don't require a sign

    Now go find the heroes!

    Suggestion:

    While you are there, poke your head in and say thank you. Trust me, it goes a long way.

    Had a medical appointment at Virginia Hospital Center - and there was the sign. I should put a sign like this on my front lawn, since one of them teacher heroes is upstairs heroing right now.

    Biking bonus: there's a long line to be COVID screened (temperature and questions) if you come into the hospital from the parking garage. If you walk in the front door after having locked your bike up out front, almost no line!

    That is a big sign, perhaps commensurate with the no of heroes that work there!

    A big thank you to your neighbor! I was thinking that having a sign would make it a big more challenging to find since not every place has one. Do they use an equivalent sign in Spain? If not, I'm thinking we could have something in the future for places that we think deserve a sign.

    #HeroesWorkHere at The Kensington Falls Church Assisted Living. My MIL lives here and I know how hard the employees have been working to keep the residents and themselves safe. Family members have not been allowed in the building except for extraordinary circumstances (eg., end of life) since last March.
