What’s in a name?
I’m not sure, but I do enjoy giving my rides a special name rather than ‘Tuesday ride’ or ‘Morning ride”. Sometimes the name is descriptive, sometimes a little poetic and sometimes just plain daft. Not sure if my cycling friends enjoy them (though some do), but it is a wee bit of fun. A local friend who I cycle with has started naming his rides after the shape of the ride on the map, this also leads to a bit of entertainment and banter.
So what are these names? Here’s a wee selection from recent ones, earlier ones first:
‘ Wi’ the B-Spokes – coffee & scones, but still no sprinkles’
‘The best laid lack of plans’
‘Enough gravel for 1,000,000 grouse gizzards’
‘Wild Dunbar & Mike’
‘B-Spokes Tuesday & Jelly Legs’
‘Talks wi ‘pals + thorn and shrew’
‘1/2 century difference and wet, wet, wet’
‘Deluge & 1/2 naked lady’
‘Oer the Hill wi’ Nicky’
‘Blown over the hill – sort of’
So, are you the ‘morning ride’ variety or do you spice up life a little?
