BikingBis: Top bike-club names. Can’t argue with Gene on these. We did have the privilege of serving with a 1980s club founded by the estimable epicure, Bradford O’Connor, in celebration of one of his favorite beverages.

TGD served its purpose and passed on, but the audacious team jersey lives in our attic somewhere.
