CHICAGO+BIKES+PARTYING=TWITTER NAME
March 1, 2011 8:30 AM   Subscribe

I'm starting a Twitter account to help promote Chicago/Midwest cycling events, mostly to messy bike kids who like to ride, drink, and have fun. Alleycats, bar nights, bar rides, cyclocross, fundraisers, Messenger Prom, Bicycle Film Festival, Cycle Messenger World Championship, trick jams, etc. Help me think of a @name!

There are a lot of city-based bicycle advocacy Twitter accounts out there. I'd like mine to be more F**K YEAH LET'S PARTY than "Write your alderman about bike lanes!" and I'd like my focus on having insane amounts of fun on bicycles to be clear from the name.

CHICAGO + BICYCLES + PARTYING = short catchy name not taken on Twitter yet

SpokeyDokes (which are the cute, colourful beads that make noise on your spokes, they are fun but perhaps too childish? I had these into my twenties though.
Similarly, SpokeyFolk.
