My Name Is What?

Monday, May 20, 2013  at 5:19 PM
Over the last week, I have been amazed with the creativity of so many of you to come up with fantastic names for my new ride!  You all could teach a class on naming bikes!  I have finally come to a conclusion on the name as well as the top 4 names that I really liked, but before I tell you, I have to tell you about what the winners are winning.

At the end of last year, I contacted two companies that create identification bracelets for cyclists or runners or any athlete for that matter.  The first company I contacted was Sportstagid.com.  
I asked them if they would be willing to give me an ID to giveaway in some sort of blog contest.  They said that they have contests on their facebook page all the time to give them away, so if you'd like to win one, go HERE and "like" their page.  It looks like they are giving them away pretty frequently.  They also sent me an ID to tryout.  


It came in the mail just a few days later, and I was so excited!  It really is a neat design that has a clasp on the back to close easily and securely.  There are trim marks on the silicone band so that you can dial in the fit around your wrist by simply cutting off the excess.


The second company I contacted was ridiculously generous!  They are Yikesid.com.  They decided to give me an ID to try AS WELL AS one for Jennifer to check out.  Both of us really like them!  The one I got has a strap like a watch band that works well as it fits any wrist size.  
Jenn's is the classic "Livestrong" band style with a smaller ID on it.  

But that's not all...  They also wanted to give YOU some ID's as well!  So, they agreed to give away:
Aren't they a cool company?  For those of you that don't win, Yikes wanted you to have 10% off if you decide to buy one, so use the code YIKES888 to get the discount.

Now, on to the names.

Chaffrey will know all about "The Big Red Dog" when he gets a little older, and I'm not referring to your new ride. Maybe you could have shirts made for the 3 of you with "the Big Red Dog" picture on the back and an embroidered logo of your bike on the front where the small 'polo' logo would go. Just a thought.
