    Lightbulb New diverse team-need help with name

    I'm pretty new to cycling myself, I'm 25, and am one of very few ladies who ride with this fairly large group of middle aged men. The group goes to many community/benefit rides around the state together (were in Arkansas), but my question is, we are trying to come up with a name. We have a couple doctors, insurance guys, electric company guys, bankers, a personal trainer, a shade tree bike shop mechanic (who prefers his carbs with lime), a process server, with the possibility of including a judge, none of us do the same thing, we really don't have a lot in common other than we all have an incredible sense of humor, all live in a crummy town, and all enjoy cycling. I've been reading archive posts, but am not coming up with anything fitting. Can you guys help me out? Thanks for any ideas!

    " It Takes All Kinds"


    The acronym won't be flashy, but it's true, right? And it would go great at community/charity stuff.

    I dont have a name but idea.
    Since there are charity events and acts of kindness that you all do. You need to tie in something with Noahs Ark<- Get the Arkansas thrown in there. The logo will need to include signs from the different occupations as well.
    Dont taze me Bro

    Vehicular cycling techniques have not been tried and found difficult. They have been presumed difficult and not tried.
