Bicycle Music

· links ·

So there I was, idly wondering what the peloton sounds like, when I see that Radio 4 has broadcast a programme called 'Bicycle Music' (no web page for the programme, but there's a listen again link on this page). It was an interesting — if somewhat odd — programme, with all sorts of musings about music inspired by bikes and the music made by bikes themselves. There was a section on the Tour de France, with an obligatory play of the Kraftwerk song of the same name, and a recording (yes, you've guessed it) of the peloton. It's almost as if the BBC is reading my mind — time for the tin-foil lined hat.
