The last bicycle boom produced some bike tunes with decidedly '70s style. First and foremost is Queen's "Bicycle Race" is from the Jazz album, which included the bike shop standard poster of the nude racers; the song lives on as one of You Tube's biggest current hits.
Nazareth also had a hit with "My White Bicycle", which actually predatest the '70s bike boom, as it's a cover of a '60s tune.
There was another hair-band tune from the 80s (Motley Crue?) that escapes me at the moment. I'll go for a ride and see if it comes to me--if I can get Freddy Mercury out of my head. Happy Trails, Ron
