    Clever Commuting Team Name?

    Hello all! I'm a grad student in Occupational Therapy and am starting a commuting team, but the only thing stopping me is thinking of a clever name! Our school is having an October Car-Free challenge. I was completely car-free in Sept, but it's better to do it with a team. And I'd rather go with something better than OT Bike Commuters. Trying to play on the words Occupational Therapy, or just use W.U.O.T (School & Program Initials) but anything works as long as it has to do with bikes!

    Haha thanks though! I couldn't even think of those. I thought of Occupicycle... kinda works?

    We also use the word Functional, as in we put the FUN in FUNctional, could play off of that somehow?

    I need it to be fun because I would love to get more people out on their bikes!!!

    OK this will be hard to describe but imagine the word "Over The Road" spelled out like that but under it at an angle is "Occupational Therapy Rocks". Remove the periods they are there for spacing.

    Ooh! Our school mascot is a bear! Although us in the Med school have a weak connection to the main campus, sadly.

    But I like Occupedaling!

    Thanks all!! Love it. I think I'm going to go with Occupedaling Theracyclists/Theracyclers, or Occupicycle Therapedalers keeping with the OT theme and so people know who we are.

    What the heck is the purpose of a team in commuting? Is it just PR or something? I can't figure out why being part of a team would matter to a commuter.

    Our school is having a Car-Free Challenge for October, and also the local Bike Advocacy Organization has a monthly commuting challenge, where you log your miles, and there are prizes. Having a team is a way to encourage more people to get on their bikes, and also more likely for prizes (www.shiftyourcommute.com)

    Here are some options:
    wustl_bikes.jpg

    I like this one, but I can create one any way you'd like.
    wustl_bike2.jpg

    These are created from a vector file (Adobe Illustrator), so if you need one that is bigger or higher resolution for anything, just let me know.
    That's gonna leave a mark.
