    Good names for cycling club?

    I'm thinking about forming a cycling club. Any suggestions for a good name? The club will start with two members; my wife and I.

    I'd gather the group, start riding, and see it the group names itself.

    That's what a group of us did thirty years ago. We ended up being Team Bozo. Our standard pace line was side-by-side. (We had lots of very low traffic roads with nearly horizon to horizon sight lines, so we could get away with such stunts.)

    You stole our local riding groups name "Hellingly Cranks"

    We live in or near to Hellingly Village and the one point of fame that Hellingly had was a Mental Institution. This was a "Hard" core institution for the really insane- padded cells- locked wards and it had been going for many years up till about 10 years ago. It is now being demolished and houses put onto it so it no longer exists.

    We had thought of another name but thought that was a bit too near the mark to be PC and that was "Hellingly Phsyco's"
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Since they have disbanded you might do something with this "Team Hill Slugs". or "Club Hill Slugs". If you were not so far from me I would consider joining.

    Given your location, how about " Dutch bikes"? (my old Dutch is Cockney slang for my wife - Dutch being a contraction of Duchess).

    If that's a bit obscure, Nederland Wheelers?
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    I used to ride (motorcycle) with an informal group which called itself the Geritol Riders. It was a stretch; the unofficial age cutoff was 30. All the same, we had a ball. Ceremonial ingestion of a Geritol tab prior to each ride, and then as many as 25-30 experienced riders would take to the road on a planned 100mi out - then back jaunt during which we concentrated more on the quality of the ride than the speed of the ride.



    Aw, heck. I call BS on myself. It was not at all about quality. We left together, and straggled back to the finish according to the maximum-possible effort available from the mounts we rode. But it was fun, great safe fun because we were all old enough to consider the rest of the traffic in our calculations of appropriate speed (that, and the Geritol tab, were the only inviolable rules), and riding under that name was to die for.
