Apologies if this has been done recently...but hwo did you get your bj username? Does it mean anything special? What your story?

I'll start:

DallasBikr - I live in Dallas, and ride a bike....pretty obvious, eh?

The reason it is misspelled is that back in 1994 when I first used this it was on my 14k dial up AOL account, and they only allowed 10 characters in usernames at the time...

I've kept it around as a personal username on message boards and whatnot ever since. On those forums where I'm working, or doing anything related to my living, I am Kevin3NF (you can google that to see many of my various database ramblings....)

Who's next?

OK - I'll go! Carpe Bikem is a play on the Latin phrase Carpe Diem which means "Sieze the Day". So it's meaning to me is "Sieze the Bike ... and RIDE"!

Can't take total credit for the nickname. I had originally thought of Carpe Ridem but my buddy BikingBum (Perry) suggested Bikem for me.

Mine is my name. Pretty simple actually.

It does make life a lot easier on those occasions when I meet with people IRL.

mine is my first name and birthdate.. real original huh?? I could have gone by NightMare18, or many different variations of NightMare, but people already knew me by Mary9761 on another bike forum and didn't want confusion.
The NightMare nick I got a LONG time ago from some friends due to the fact I'm a big Alice Cooper and I have had "nightmarish" mood swings in the past At the time my best friend's name was ALSO Mary so she was Mare Bear and I was NightMare

When I first joined BJ (and a newbie to cycling and all its terminology) I used the name hammerman because I own a small hardware store. Now I'm stuck with having to live up to my name. I'm not great yet, but I'm getting better at hammering up the rolling hills we have here. By the way, I'm heading to Denver next week, so I'll find out what REAL climbs are like!!

I'm a hydrogeologist (a geologist that works with groundwater), and feldspar is the name of a common mineral group.

I'm sure some of the Club Hypoxia gang would be happy to show them to you first hand. But bring your own O2 bottle, Shadowcat and ZenLC don't use them.

You may think mine comes from cycling.
Yet long before cycling.....
It actually comes from my moustache

Um, well...

Actually, it isn't my given name, but the phonetic equivalent of my initials (hard G, A, hard C). Still, it's a nickname of mine all the same.

I was going to use an old nickname, lilchyna_girl, but thought that might be confusing. especially since i'm not chinese. so we went with ebers 79, ebers being a nickname off emily (even i don't understand the correlation, but it's stuck over the years) and 79, cause, well, i was born in 79.
