Cyclists of the day: Wildbirds & Peacedrums

They’ll play at Blå in Oslo on October 2nd …probably without the pretty bicycles.

(Listen to Wildbirds & Peacedrums here)

Pretty music & bicycles – Can you help me find more videos containing both?

Sun is shining in Oslo, and I start to remember how spring feels like. And to make this feeling even stronger, I’m looking for music videos containing great music and the wonderful movement of bicycles. Just like this one by The Smiths. I love it, and I’d like to see more of the same genre….if there are any.

Copenhagen 1937

I’m now spending my last days in Copenhagen before returning to the not so bicycle friendly city of Oslo. So it suits with this old travel video from 1937 (“Copenhagen – a FitzPatrick Traveltalk”). Look at the traffic – the bicycles, the tram, the walking people and the few cars. It seems like they all float together, though with a helping hand from the constable. An obvious change in the city image today is the absence of a tram, increase in amount of cars and the bicycle lanes and traffic lights, but the amount of bicyclists is still large. They’re everywhere, and you can still see people cycling with furniture in Copenhagen…

Enjoy this wonderful image of the Danish capital.
