    Default Team 12

    Hi Team 12! Do we have a Forum thread or a Strava club? If not, we can start here.
    This is our roster:
    Team 12:
    AFHokie
    bentbike33
    bikingjenn
    cyclingfool
    IronMoney
    KWL
    millerj826
    peterw_diy
    Red Ryder
    snugglefestival
    timv
    wheels&wings
    Thavaradhara
    We can discuss team names via Strava once we’ve got a club set up. I have a favorite name in mind, as some of you know.
    Last night I met KWL - our acting team captain, plus peterw_diy, snugglefestival, and timv – our ringer.
    I look forward to meeting the rest of you.
    If anyone wants to get coffee this weekend at Best Buns or elsewhere, please holler! We can set something up.
    Happy riding!! w&w

    Default Ready to Roll!

    Hi everyone! I'm excited to be joining Freezing Saddles for the first time this year. I love biking for exercise and have started commuting by bike more and more, (though not in the winter!). On the advice of a fellow Freezing Saddles rider, I took my second/hybrid bike to the office and locked it in our bike room so that I can sneak out and get in mid-day bike rides to keep the points coming throughout the week.

    Last weekend I broke out my sewing machine to create a fleece balaclava and headband with a badass electric green and blue houndstooth/skull fabric (picture attached). I made extras (5 balaclavas and 5 headbands) and would be happy to give them to anyone on the team who is interested.

    I'd be happy to set up our team in Strava if we need someone to do this, and am always game to plan and organize events or whatnot.

    I set up the Team 12 Strava club, I think. See if you can join here: https://www.strava.com/clubs/175542.

    I am a long-time bike commuter, but first-time BAFS rider. In prior years I gave up the full bike commute during Standard Time riding only to metro. But I so hate riding indoor stationary bikes to try to keep in shape that this year I'm doing the full commute through the winter, ice and snow permitting. I live near Tyson's Corner and work near L'Enfant Plaza, so I'm mostly on the W&OD, Custis, and MVT.

    Since my job involves leading a sizable organization and making lots of decisions, I prefer to let others lead in my leisure activities and to go with the flow.

    I would like one of snugglefestival's headbands, please!

    Checking in. This is my third year doing Freezing Saddles. I used to be a lot more active on the forum but a combination of life circumstances and the fact that I no longer have a desk job and the opportunity to fill voids in my day by checking in on the forum mean I am not as active as I used to be, much to my chagrin (but I digress).

    I'm a regular year-round commuter (Del Ray to Clarendon at the moment), but rarely have the opportunity to ride otherwise. I've been riding thus far in 2016, though I haven't uploaded to Strava in a couple weeks. I just joined the Strava group for our team. I'm looking forward to this year's FS.

    Cheers teammates! Let's go, Big 12!

    I'd love just some good patterns, having finally laundered the fleece I bought months ago so I could make color coordinated headgear.

    This is the site I used for the balaclava pattern: http://projectophile.net/2013/12/19/...rossing-guard/

    There were some other fancier ones, but this was really simple and easy.

    I compared our Forum roster to the Strava roster and think we are missing bikingjenn, IronMoney, millerj826, Red Ryder, and one more. I am new to the Forum myself and not so savvy with this site but tried sending them private messages to connect. Hopefully we will get the full group together on Strava soon!

    Sorry I went missing. Thank you w&w for starting things off and big thanks to bentbike for setting up our Strava group. This is my first year for Freezing Saddles and I just started using Strava a few months ago, so it was very nice having you folks cover for me.

    I'm a year round commuter from Del Ray to Georgetown. I haven't been doing much weekend riding for a few years now, but am going to get out on weekends for BAFS this winter. My days of back to back centuries like TOSRV are long gone, however. Count on 26 points every workday and at least 22 points for the weekend from me. Now I think I better go join our Strava group.

    I'll PM cvcalhoun to get their email addresses so I can hound them.
