D-Tour 2007: Glendale, AZ to Del Rio, TX

Naming my tour – I need your input!

Ok guys, I need your help. I just don’t feel like “1000 mile tour” has a ring to it and I really want to build some excitement around this tour. I am even thinking about getting shirts made — with the ones for my wife and kid saying “Staff” on the back would be great! Anyway, back on track – I need a name for the tour. Something really great. Send me your best ideas here. If I do get shirts made, and you are the one that came up with the name, I will even get you one too!

I’ll start everyone off with the names I have thought of so far:

  • Tour de Texas
  • Fat man rides across the desert tour
  • My midlife crisis tour

Ok – they aren’t great but that’s why I’m asking for your help. I can’t wait to hear from you guys!

For the front:
“1000 miles for 1 reason”

For the back:
the actual reason

Dale, you’ll have to fill that in as I’m not prevy to that information. Why are you doing the 1000 mile ride? Looking forward to hearing all about it!

Pop a wheelie….I did!

Date and Destination

I visualize this as a vintage tee, something old school looking! Maybe even baby doll shirts for the girls!

Dale, what about the “gleam’ng demon” ride-a-thon; love you all – Aunt Doris

how about these:

1. The last thing I’ll ever do tour
2. Who’s idiot idea was this tour (this will be the perfect name for it about 30 miles into the trip)
3. Tour de ouch

“Are we there yet?”

“I’m proving YOU CAN do it! Tour

My vote is on Dana’s tour name though!

Well I was thinking “Dale’s Ride-N-A-Thong” but that might not be comfortable so…how about: “The Canonball Ride” or “Journey to the Center of Texas”

Jeremy’s Dale to Del..Rios is great! Maybe on the front you could have this and then Doing it Dale style on the back. Good luck!

1000 miles of road left to go … 1000 miles of road … if one of those miles should happen to pass … 999 miles of road left to go

Dale, here are a few ideas for you…

“I rode 1000 miles through the desert and all I got was a sore butt, sunburn, dehydration, aching muscles and this lousy t-shirt.”

“Del Rio or Bust – One Man Phoenix to Del Rio 1000 Mile Bike Tour 2007 (and maybe list all the places you’ll be stopping along the way with the dates and milage)”

“Dale’s Amazing Trek” (maybe you can get Trek bikes to sponser you?)

Good Luck!


I’m just giving you a hard time. I wish you well with this. You’re doing something great. Good luck.

Here are my ideas:

Since you intend to do this annually, you need a name for the 1000 mile tour itself. Then you could say the “dah dah dah tour presents 1000 miles to Rio” or whatever.

So my idea for the annual concept is Trip N Dale’s (like Chippendales).

Or the D Tour.
