    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.
