New Name for Website?

Looks like I am going to keep the Rogues Gallery alive as a new site on googlepages. Since the long term plan is to have the Rogues Gallery be a part of the new site I think we need a new overall site name.

Any suggestions?

CyclingOver50
50+Cyclists
BF50Plus
IStillRideMyBike
OldFartsOnBikes

Let those creative juices flow...

Masters Gallery 50+

USA Cycling divides riders into elite and masters. The elite category is 23 through 29 years old. The masters category starts at 30 years old.

I kinda think we should steal the name of another thread: Bugs, Pie and Ice Cream.

The one party who I would nominate for that gallery is SSP - dating young athletic women, crashing on a high speed descent and riding the Death Ride in a 52/39 --- 12/25. Possibly, JPPE, but an assault on mountains without the young women is hardly wild. Even the guys riding fixed gear up mountains cannot compete with SSP. QED.

No Wait!!! I like it better the way you've got it now.
Old Farts on Bikes is great and the the Bugs, Pie and Ice Cream is perfect.

Kindly disregard my silly submissions

That number just has too much baggage for me to wear ever again. But it is still a cool jersey.

Yes. Anybody that looks as scary in a jersey as you do can vote as often as they like.
