Congratulations to Amber for naming my new bike! She wins a week of training for free with the Training Peaks program and unlimited coach access for a sport of her choice. Steve also had a wonderful name suggestion of Tyche, or the Greek goddess of good luck.
My new time trial bike will be called, Ikaika (ee-kai-kuh), which is the Hawai’ian word for strong or warrior. I think the name suits her just fine, especially since the sport of triathlon began in Hawai’i, and Kona continues to host the Ironman World Championships there every year. Maybe with Ikaika, I’ll get a chance to race in Kona one day, but until then I’ll imagine I’m back in Hawai’i enjoying the scenery and surf. I need to come for a visit soon; I’ve been away from Hawai’i too long! Mahalo!
