bikes
 n.pl.— «The grinding pedestal -known as the “bikes” (although some occasionally referred to it as something quite unprintable)—was manned by local West Indian Woody who looked as though he could grind non stop all day without breaking sweat.…The knowledge that a cardio-vascular surgeon and one of the world’s leading heart transplant anaesthetists were among our number certainly made those detailed to “the bikes’ feel a little less apprehensive.» —“In the Pink” by David Glenn Yachting World May 1, 2006.
