    Default Newbie Thread--Come say hi!

    Since there are a lot of us newbies (either to Freezing Saddles or the Forum)(defined as less than 20 posts), this thread gives you a chance to introduce yourself. I'm Emma (elwbikes), I did FS last year but have not been super-involved in the Forum (trying to change that). I had a great time and it encouraged me to ride more than I thought possible in the winter, and I'm now a year-round bike commuter. Now matter your goals, whether you are a weekend warrior, errandanneur, or commuter, or gravel grinder, I think you will enjoy the competition!

    Okay, I'll bite.

    Hello! I'm Millie. I purchased a hybrid in May because I wanted to find a new healthy addiction. It seems to have worked so far. I joined freezing saddles because I want to learn how to bike in the cold. Since my work is too far to commute via bike I guess I'm a weekend warrior, but I swear when there's more sunlight in the day I have the chance to ride on the weekdays as well! At least I try...

    Well, that's what lights are for, right?

    I'm looking forward to the fun. I'm also looking forward to the days getting longer starting... tomorrow!

    Cheers,
    Millie

    Good morning!

    I'm Chris (@Alcova Cyclist) and have been and on-and-off commuter for several years. A recent job change and move made cycling a much better option (on) until I broke my hand in October (off), but now I am back in the saddle (on). Hoping BAFS will change my thought calculus when I am deciding whether to wimp out and take the bus instead this winter.

    Chris

    Hiya,
    My name is Kristina Dugan, and this will be my first time cycling thru the winter months. I started bike commuting full time 2 months ago (thanks in large part to all the encouragement and inspiration from WABA's Women & Bicycles group) and thought Freezing Saddles would be that extra nudge to help get me through the cold weather ahead. Plus, a little competition never hurts either

    Hi. I try to bike commute two or three days a week (during the winter, more during the summer). I'm eager for this extra push.

    Welcome to all of you who have posted here so far, and thanks for the introductions!

    Just in case any of you are in town and looking for an early bike ride the morning of Christmas Eve (or any other Weds), please know that you're invited to join us at Weds. "Hump Day" coffee club at Best Buns in Shirlington. These usually run from 7 am until about 8, but many of us are working a short day this Weds., so it'll probably run a lot longer than usual. We'd be delighted to have you join us!
