    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.

    Hey guys, lets go play bikes!

    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.
