Freddie Mercury of QUEEN wrote this song in France after watching the Tour de France pass by his hotel.

Bicycle Race was released as a double A-side single with "Fat Bottomed Girls." They ran back to back on the album, and many radio stations played them together.

Wherever Queen played, bicycle shops sold out of bells bought by fans who brought them to the show to ring them during this song.

Queen staged a bicycle race around Wimbledon stadium in England to promote the single. 65 women were contestants, and they had to race naked. A photo from the race was used on the cover of the single.
