    I like! Kindly hold two for me. I can't come to coffee this Friday to retrieve, but will do so some other time.

    I will have them at the Inspired to Ride film this Thursday at the Drafthouse & Cinema

    Bike Arlington (actually WABA, sorry) is hosting a ride to the film from Courthouse at 6PM.

    Hope to see you there.

    I also am a maybe for this week's Imperial HDCC at Best Buns.

    I can sponsor a pointless prize this year! If possible I'd like to award the coldest ride or something similar... Maybe the most miles in the single digits or something like that. I can't participate this year because I'll be gone for all of Jan-Feb, but where I'm going will be a perfect place to pick up prizes.

    I'm thinking 2 prizes:
    1) The ride during the coldest recorded temperature of the contest
    2) The longest ride on the day with the coldest high temperature

    As I recall, the program recorded temperatures for semi-local reporting stations right?

    If you become a definite, I'd like to get 2.

    Also, what time would you anticipate arriving? I usually pass Shirlington by 6:30/6:45, but can certainly delay.

    I assume this is a good place & time to announce my two ideas for pointless prizes that I will buy/make/freegan appropriate prizes for. Terse descriptions:

    1: Visit the most States in one ride. Must include DC, VA or MD. A MD, WV, VA, PA ride would count as 4 but a Rhode Island, Mass, Conn, New York, Vermont ride would not count at all. Ties broken by length.
    2: Visit the most DC bike shops in a ride. Photo of you or your bike in front of the shop required. Hopefully would get people to search out those small obscure shops. Box Stores would not count. Ties broken by my assessment of shop obscurity or length.

    Hey Steve O, we're flattered, but we can't actually take credit for leading this ride. From the page you linked, it looks like Renee Yvonne will be putting it on. Looks like fun though, let us know how it goes. Yay for bike culture!
