    Exclamation How to Enter

    Just thought I'd post all the steps to enter the competition in one place. (I did this earlier, but it was buried in the comments instead of having its own post.) To enter, you need to:
    1. Register for Strava. (This must be done before filling out the application form, because you'll need your Strava information to fill out the form.)
    2. Register for this forum. (It is helpful to have done this before filling out the application form, so that you can give your forum name on the application.)
    3. Fill out the application form. (Deadline is December 24 at midnight.)
    4. Authorize the BikeArlington Freezing Saddles app on Strava.
    5. Find out which team you are on.
    6. Join the appropriate club for your team on Strava. Here is a page with a link to each team's club on Strava. You'll need to go to the appropriate club on Strava and click the "Request to Join" link.


    Bonus link:

    Here is the leaderboard.

    Given that I'm new here myself, does anyone have any additions or corrections to this list?

    Thanks for posting the steps. One suggestion: contestants might want to register for the forum before filling out the Freezing Saddles application, so that they will have their forum username to put down on the application.

    Alas, I cannot go to happy hour in Shirlington on January 2! I have a preexisting commitment to a rehearsal for The Vagina Monologues, coming to Greenbelt Arts Center January 24 to February 8. I'm hoping that I will somehow get notified of which team I'm on, anyway.

    I am sure the teams will be posted here shortly thereafter. We will need those teams to turn into Strava clubs (and everyone to join their respective teams) before the leaderboard will be functional in competition mode. Those (like myself) that are on the current board will drop off when the configured team list no longer includes BikeArlington. (And we'll reset the db to reflect the start of the competition on the 1st.)

    People might also want to start thinking about possible names for their teams.
