    Musician cyclists? Favourites - I'd love to hear

    I'm aware of Eric Clapton's collection of Cinellis. That the title of 'Disraeli Gears' was an enquiry about the shifters on his bike. That David Byrne is a committed urban cyclist. That Ginger Baker used two Bass drums as that was how he pedalled.

    Please let me know of more. If anyone has evidence that Bob was a fixie hipster skidder.....

    Well, there's The Steel Wheels, an Americana band (who've actually toured on bicycle, toting all their equipment, including a stand-up bass), and The Ditty Bops were named one of Billboard Magazine’s Top Ten Green Bands for completing a 5,000 mile bicycling music tour across the USA

    For cyclists it's hard to beat Steel Wheels. Here's a photo of the whole group arriving before a concert.

    Well here's a video of Peter Gabriel singing one of my favorite songs while riding a bike:

    And as an added bonus, here's video of my son on stage (in the striped shirt) singing with the Ditty Bops in Philly:

    Actor and Broadway star Mandy Patinken has a great tenor voice.

    Historic operatic bass Ezio Pinza (did the singing for Rossano Brazzi in the classic movie version, a famous rendition of "Some Enchanted Evening") was a devoted cyclist.
