Songs about Biking

There are a few out there, and not just Queen. Does anyone know any good ones?

I've recently been listening to Bomb the Music Industry, and on the album Get Warmer they have a song called Bike Test 1 2 3. Great song, and it's freely distributed (though if you like their stuff you can send them some money).

Daisy Bell. (HAL 9000's favorite song)

Quote:
Daisy, Daisy, Give me your answer do?
I'm half crazy, All for the love of you!
It won't be a stylish marriage,..I can't afford a carriage,
But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two!

There is a flower within my heart, Daisy, Daisy!
Planted one day by a glancing dart,
Planted by Daisy Bell!
Whether she loves me of not, Sometimes its hard to tell;
Yet I am longing to share the lot of Beautiful Daisy Bell!

(chorus)

Daisy, Daisy, Give me your answer do?
I'm half crazy, All for the love of you!
It won't be a stylish marriage,..I can't afford a carriage,
But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two!

(chorus)

We will go "tandem" as man and wife, Daisy, Daisy!
Ped'ling away down the road of life,
I and my Daisy Bell!
When the road's dark we can dispise P'licman and "lamps" as well;
There are "bright lights" in the dazzling eyes
Of beautiful Daisy Bell!

(chorus)

I will stand by you in "wheel or woe, Daisy, Daisy!
You'll be the bell(e) which I'll ring, you know!
Sweet little Daisy Bell!
You'll take the lead in each trip we take,
Then if I don't do well; I will permit you to use the break,
My beautiful Daisy Bell!!!

We don't care if they laugh at us
Let 'em take the bus and leave the cycle for us
They can have a Cadillac and T-bird too
But gimme my rockin' bicycle for two
