Women’s Weekly Ride

by on July 3, 2012

Thanks to Julia for sharing this outrageous image from Pip Design.

What?  You don’t know the connection between Athena and the owl?  Scroll down for the scoop…and see you at HQ tonight at 8 p.m. for the WWR.  I’d like to do more riding on the grass track–anyone else up for that?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Athena is frequently depicted with an owl named the Glaucus (or “owl of Athena” and later under the Roman Empire, “owl of Minerva“) perched on her head. This pairing evolved in tangent so that even in present day the owl is upheld as a symbol of perspicacity and erudition.Unsurprisingly, the owl became a sort of Athenian mascot.

        Thanks for passing it along. :)

  2. After reading the connection with Athena and the Owl I’m thinking that we should use an owl in the logo. Maybe have the owl with it’s wing spread out and a bicycle tire set behind it or the owl could be carrying a bike or bike tire. This is me thinking before my first cup of coffee.
