Songs about bicycling
 
The daughter of some of our closest friends created a video for Nora Jane Struthers called "Goin' on a Bike Ride".

Just wondering if any of you have other contributions to this genre.

Gene Clark and Carla Olson - Gypsy Rider.

The song may have been written for motorcycles but it works just fine for bicycles too.

Freddie Mercury is the best front man of all time. He wants to ride his bicycle where he likes.

LOL, I forgot about that one! I noticed they weren't wearing helmets though . . .

Here's another good one, NSFW.

There was a pop/rock group named Bicycle. Some good bike songs. They even toured to concerts on their bikes.

If you search Amazon.com music for Bicycle, you'll find hundreds of songs.

I tend to find myself singing this song when I'm out riding alone.

this is the song that plays in my head while i am cycling:


i love the smell of napalm in the morning

I would imagine that a lyricist would take a tune and write the lyrics for it. A lot like Bacharach and David. In this case, an existing tune with new lyrics.
