    how'd you come up with your ID?

    Im from a very small town, where everyone knows everyone but somehow they rarely refer to me as Karen. They always refer to me as "ha! that blonde running girl?" or "ha, that blonde biking girl?"
    it's always been as if I dont even have a name... so on here I kept tradition and combined both names they gave me.
    what does your ID mean to you and why did you pick it?

    I picked it for my blogging, actually. I cover some very personal issues at times after surgery, etc, and I needed a little distance. Othe rthan that, I kind of like it.....it's a cool name!

    A loooooong time ago, when websites first started making everybody register with a username, I figured out very quick I couldn't keep remembering different names. So I decided I needed to use one name and stick with it.

    Here's the story how I originally came up with the name:

    A couple years ago some friends and I were in need of a name for our adventure racing team.

    I felt the name needed to be particularly irreverent, and nonsensical...so Team Snuffleupagus it was.

    When I was just starting out bike racing, my team had a coach who was very talented, and a German emigrant. He raced in Europe, and was retired in Phoenix, and was lots of fun to work with. He didn't like the fact that the Phoenix area was so flat, so most of our training was in the foothills and mountains surrounding the metro area. So, his main concern with us was that we were in the correct gear at ALL times, and would ride along in his car (his wife driving the Mercedes) with us, constantly telling us to "shift! shift! shift up! shift down! (think German acsent here). To this day when I start to climb a hill I can hear his banter in my head, and I'm a better rider from his coaching (I was then too). So, we called him?, you guessed it, he became know as Shifty. My screen name is a tribute to my first, and most wonderful cycling coach.
    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas

    I came up with mine because mine from the are of Seattle I lived in (Northgate) when I first got on line.
    It was because I could not use my name (David) or nickname (Chia, another long story) without having a bunch of numbers after it.

    guess I should change it to neverettguy (I live in North Everett) now

    Mine comes from an old British radio comedy program caled "The Goon Show." It was actually before my time, but my parents had a lot of recordings from the show, and I used to listen to them all the time. There was a character named bluebottle who I always related to in a strange sort of way. He was a little....off. Anyway, like KT, I can't remember hundreds of different identities, so I've stuck with this one most everywhere.

    Mine's not that exciting. I explained this once a long time ago somewhere here on BF.

    17 is my favorite number. It's just come up a lot in my life: two apartments have been #17, One of my favorite local race drivers number was #17, The day my plane landed back home in the U.S. after Desert Storm was April 17th, etc... there are many instances...but suffice it to say that 17 comes up a lot in my life. I even had to use the number 17 in my Ebay I.D. because it was the first number I could use/that was available in front of the word I wanted for my I.D.

    Cycle...or more accurately cycling....is one of the things I love to do most and this IS a cycling website, so cycle17.
    Just Do It..
