The Best Songs About Bikes



What gets stuck in your head while you ride? My brain likes to fixate on lyrics about bikes—particularly the Moldy Peaches' "I just want to ride bikes with you," and Team Dresch's "I wish I was riding bikes with you." (Apparently my subconscious needs more riding partners.)

In the interest of drumming up more bicycle-themed jams for my mental roster, I asked everyone at Bicycling to submit some of their favorite bike songs and compiled them all into the playlist below. Do you have a favorite bike song? What would you add?
