Bandók

Put an end to boring-ass ride names.

Connect to Strava and let us give your rides the names they deserve.

HOW'S IT WORK?

It's as easy as... well... riding a bike. Just post your rides to Strava like normal. If you give it a name then we'll leave it alone. But if it has a default name we'll jump in to help give your feed some pizzazz. So, you're invited to join the naming revolution. Impress your friends, up your kudo count and achieve unprecidented popularity. Try it now.

Waffles are just awesome bread.

Fulfill the prophecy, build a legacy, manifest destiny

I love a good nap. Sometimes it's the only thing getting me out of bed in the morning.

Whole Damn Planet Wanted A Piece Of Me

Anybody interested in grabbing a couple of burgers and hittin' the cemetery?

Never Half-Ass Two Things. Whole-Ass One Thing.

I don't know how much longer I can hold this!

You get hurt, hurt 'em back. You get killed... walk it off.

Let me know if 'real power' wants a magazine or anything.

Mischievous and Deceitful, Chicanerous and Deplorable

Destiny is the one doing the folding and we're the oregami swans

Bad decisions make good stories.

I used to think I'm indecisive but now I'm not sure.

Abandon the search for Truth; settle for a good fantasy.

Look, I got a few good years left. If I want a Chip Ahoy, I'm having it.

WHAT THE FAQ?

My ride naming game is weaker than a geriatric gerbil. Will this help make me cool?
Um.... YEAH!

That name sucks! Can I get another?
If you're not 100% satisfied with the ride name chosen for you, then add an old school sad face :( to the end of the name and Bandók will give it another shot.

What does Bandók mean anyway?
Bandok is the Tagalog (philippines) word for a mountainous area that is difficult to access. It is the origin of the english word Boondocks. Remote mountainous areas are where I prefer to spend my time.

You suck! I can come up with better ride names in my sleep.
Was that a question? Either way, put your money where your mouth is and join the naming fun. You can submit name ideas here and become a genuine Internet hero.

What do you do with my persoanal data?
Nothing. Bandók doesn't collect information about you and has no plans to do so. We just name your rides. Nothing more.

Can I still name my rides myself?
After seeing Bandók's literary gold, why would you want to? But hey, if you just gotta scratch that itch you are more than welcome. If you name a ride it will be left alone. Even if Bandók has already given it a name, you can still change it at any time. I won't judge.

Who comes up with this crap?
Ride names come from movies and TV shows, pop culture, song lyrics, jokes, puns, and nuggets of wisdom all mixed with my own personal brand of humor.

How do I leave?
This is not Hotel California. You can leave any time you want. Go to Strava.com and choose settings. Then choose aps. Click "Revoke Access" and Bandók will no longer have access to give you sweet ride names.

How much does it cost?
Bandók is free. This is a personal passion project, not a business. But donations are always welcome. If you have any suggestions on how to monetize this service, let me know.
