A Hub of Copenhagen Cyclists

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:
- A pallet of cargo bikes
- A lounge of recumbents

I came up with:
- A cove of beach cruisers
- A sweat of racing bikes
- A posture of upright bikes
- A load of Xtra cycles
- An insecurity of helmets [;-)]
- An elevation of high-heeled Copenhagen fashionistas
- A fold of Bromptons

Jason proposed these:
- A tower of tall bikes
- A cog of fixed gear bikes
- A trick of BMXers
- A basket of townies
- A cubby of folding bikes
- A tread of mountain bikes
- A convoy of commuter cyclists
- A union of unicycles

Steve proposes:
- A bank of velodrome bikes.
