Need your help: Looking for a good domain name for our world cycling homepage

Hello,

this is my first thread!

I'm form Germany and plan to bike around the world with my girl friend next year.

So now we are looking for a "good" domain name for our homepage.

It should
1. be not to long,
2. easy to remember
3. has to do something with "bike", "travelling", "around the world" etc.
4. .de and .com domains available (check here: http://www.register.com/)

Here is our first list of possible domains:

globiker.de/com
globikers.de/com
globiking.de/com
easybici.de/com
easy-bici.de/com
bikealong.de/com
easybikeride.de/com
easy-cycling.de/com
biketogether.de/com
veloglobal.de/com
wheel-the-world.de/com
worldwheeling.de/com
borntocycle.de/com
borntobike.de/com
worldwidebikers.de/com
easy-packing.de/com

As we are no native speakers, we want to ask you what you think about these domain names. Which do you like, which not? Which are bad/wrong/no English? Maybe some of you have even other/better suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Christof

I put my vote in for worldwidebikers.de/com. It's catchy, and not too long. Should be easy to remember, and besides that everybody will bookmark it so they can check on your progress.

Good Luck,

Denny

Hi Denny,

Thanks! What about bikealong.de/com? Does it make sense?

I hope to get some more votes.

I'd use words that people who are not native speakers can easily understand and remember. Something with velo into is easy to remember and is universal to cyclists; no matter where you are from velo means bike! Good luck!

Up to now voters like worldwheeling.de and worldwheeling.com most. We like it as well although we don't know what exactly "worldwheeling" / "world wheeling" means. Can anybody tell us.
