List of songs about bicycles

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of songs about bicycles or cycling.

Bicycles became popular in the 19th century as the new

designs of safety bicycle were practical for the general
population, including women. By the end of that century,
cycling was a fashion or fad which was reflected in the
popular songs of the day. The most famous of these was
"Daisy Bell",[1] inspired by the phrase "a bicycle made for
two".[2] The vogue for cycling songs continued into the
Edwardian era and modern examples continue to appear in the
21st century.[3]
