Ok you super word sluthes ... need some help

I need a kick*** cycling slogan using only the following letters;

A,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,K,L,M,N,P,Q,R,S,T,V,W,Y

The slogan should preferably pertain to road biking.
The slogan should possibly be about climbing hills.
The slogan should be limited to less than 15 letters.

Shoot!

Cadence and cascade.

Too many letters. Plus, it's a rip off of the title of an old 60s song. But it's got a yin and yang thing going.

You didn't make this easy, you know.

These bases are used in combinations of 3 (called codons) to make amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins. Amino acids have relatively long names but can be reduced to single letter designations. There are 20 of them correpsonding to the list I presented. I want to spell something out in the DNA to include on the jersey that will be a bit cryptic. I was thinking of using the names of my daughters, but I can't spell my youngest with the included letters.

You asked for it.

Thanks for all help in advance.

I like "cadence" but am not fond of "cascade." Maybe I can build off of cadence.

Thanks,
