The Life-Sized City Blog: A Hub of Copenhagen Cyclists

This is ‘a hub of Copenhageners’.We coined this phrase a while back, for fun. There is a long line of interesting names for animal flocks in English like:- A leash of greyhounds- A gaggle of geese- An exaltation of larks- A shrewdness of apes- A troop of kangaroos- A parliament of owls- A siege of herons- A crash of rhinoceri

We played a game over at Cycle Chic a while back and I fancied reviving it.

What words can we come up with for bicycles and bicycle culture? Let's write the dictionary, shall we?Here's what we came up with:

Val - The King of Kargo Bikes in Seattle:
