    Is Queen's "Bicycle Race" the cyclist equivalent of a "Rickroll"?

    I am just fed up with clicking on cycling video links and hearing "I want to ride my bicycle" - the lyric from Queen's worst ever hit song - the super-annoying 'Bicycle Race' - over and over and over again!

    I'm considering starting a movement to ban this song for any cycling-related use. Am I the only cyclist who thinks this song is awful? And once you hear it, there's no getting rid of it - it sticks in one's brain and it just keeps going on and on! Surely there's a cycling song that would be better as cycling's unofficial 'anthem'. Heck, surely 'Daisy Bell' would be better.

    And it's not as if I'm a Queen-hater - I love the band, but I cannot stand this song.

    All I need is a bike and a road, and to be left with the same freedom any other road user has to decide what's the safest lane position.

    Would you prefer "Fat bottomed girls"?

    LOL. No, but at least that would be a change.
