Silly Commuting Songbook

Postby rjsterry » Mon Nov 19, 2012 13:01 pm

A shameless crib from ISIHAC, but we've a well-established team of punsters (Kieran, I'm looking at you in particular), and it would be a shame to waste such talent. I'll start:

Grimpeur, We Love You!

EDIT: OK, for those not aware of Messrs Garden Garden, Brook-Taylor, Cryer et al, the idea is to come up with cycling related pun shoe-horned into a well-known song title.
1997 Giant Peloton 7200 - FCN 4 (5 if it looks like rain)
1985 Mercian King of Mercia - work in progress (Hah! Who am I kidding?)
1980s BSA 10sp
