    Default Squad Six

    Hi–Neighbor! Welcome to Squad Six! We're not quite the Branchville Mafia, nor the only (unexpected) Maryland team this year, so we might have to be a tad more creative about names...but let's get started! I've already whipped up a quick shell club site here, if you wouldn't mind joining; more prettythings will be coming once we actually know what we're doing.

    Right. Who's "we?"

    bikeeveryday
    bkavolius
    Brünø Moore
    Clunkymonk
    dr.paulproteus
    jopamora
    KristyCP
    limeyb
    moco_cyclist
    Mtansill
    nmatherne
    sethpo

    Now I know a few of you, have heard of one or two others, but I'm guessing a couple of us are new to this here game. So welcome! Now let's git this partay started...

    1. For those of you reading this, we have a Strava group. Go make Krampus happier by joining, if you haven't already.

    2. We need a name. Like, an actual name. Six...um, Le Wiki tells me that six is part of the Number of the Beast, the number of strings on a guitar, the number of wings on a seraph, and the number of beers in a six-pack. There's also Cannondale's Super Six, I guess. If we're going for geographical names...something about the Purple Line, since we're spread out all over PG and Moco? Or maybe just a winter-appropriate Krampus reference, since I'm rather fond of the smiling beastie?

    3. While I suspect I've probably run into most of you at some time or other, I'm Phill, AKA "2L." Used to work at Proteus with Dr. Paul, now at Bikeyspace (usually downtown, sometimes at the Morg, soon in Ivy City), always doing schtuff with WABA. Some of you may have noticed that I enjoy the occasional cup of coffee on days off. I'm one of the few people who not only names their bikes, but has gotten other people to use those names in casual conversation.

    The wiki also has these two factoids that I'm sure we can twist into a cycling freezing saddles name.

    6 is the atomic number of carbon
    The sixfold symmetry of snowflakes arises from the hexagonal crystal structure of ordinary ice

    I go with sex, beer and movies.
    Peter goes with science.

    I mean, what kind of team is this going to be?

    Default Team Names

    Hmm...

    Six, Drugs, and Rock n' Roll
    The Mighty Mighty Hex Bolts
    Six is the Loneliest Number
    Hexagon with the Wind
    In the year 2526
    Vertical Six
    Saddle Six
    Six Bob Ombs (a la Scott Pilgrim vs the World)
    Hex Bob Ombs

    Or how about a little Latin...
    Six Erat Scriptum
    Sex Erat Scriptum
    (six actually translates into sex in Latin.)



    Isn't it great that I already have jerseys with sixes on them thanks to Twin Six?

    Rule 6 isn't good for a team name

    Rule #6 Free your mind and your legs will follow.

    Your mind is your worst enemy. Do all your thinking before you start riding your bike. Once the pedals start to turn, wrap yourself in the sensations of the ride – the smell of the air, the sound of the tires, the feeling of flight as the bicycle rolls over the road.

    Was also thinking something referencing The Prisoner, since we are Number Six. Wasn't that weather balloon called Rover or something?

    That said, "Six, Drugs, and Rock n' Roll" has a ring to it.
