    After a very shouty Spanish-style EGM on Saturday night, our club has decided to split from the shop which until now has sponsored it.

    This means that we need a new name (we were previously called the same name as the shop). We have until Tuesday at mid-day to think of a better name than the current one suggested.

    ALL suggestions gratefully received. Thanks

    (the club is based in Madrid, is mostly cross country mountain biking but also does some downhill and possibly some roadie stuff)

    🙂 I like Juan Speed a lot but nobody has a SS here, or a fixie, or a hardtail, or anything made of steel. They are a bit like sheep when it comes to buying mountain bikes – we could call it the Lapierre Full-Suss club and that would cover most of the 200 members.

    hmmm, not bad.

    maybe with a 'c' instead of a 't'

    locomocion

    I might suggest it.

    now you know that can be changed if a certain someone got a proper bike

    what eats snails? that'd be a pretty good counter name?

    or los sajones?

    ideally youd have a name in spag that when abbreviated to an acronym said something terrible in english 😀

    what eats snails?

    nice idea,
    Google says:
    Hedgehogs, ducks, robins, foxes, birds

    french people

    which would give us the following possible club names:

    los erizos; los patos; los petirrojos; los zorros; los pajaros; y los franceses

    Are people from Madrid not called Los Gatos?

    i like los patos 😀

    esp as there is a pato in Pocoyo

    franceses would might end being mistaken for omelettes

    esp as there is a pato in Pocoyo

    weird, that was my first thought too

    Are people from Madrid not called Los Gatos?

    indeed, coz they stay out all night (or some other legend about them climbing over the walls when there was a curfew I think)

    do you think "The Kitten Club" is a good name or maybe gives the wrong impression? 😯

    Maybe the Kitten Club could lead to some interesting people turning up!

    I love the Pocoyo books. I borrow them from my girlfriend's 2yr old neice to improve my Spanish! Edit: that doesn't help though, sorry…
