my white bicycle

a farthing for your thoughts, dear boy.

Rosa rides a mountain bike. She takes it everywhere rather than use the subway or file onto a bus.

I like to watch her ass as she pedals off.

TOMORROW: MY WHITE BICYCLE from "Tomorrow" LP (Parlophone) 1967 (UK)

PINK FLOYD: BIKE from "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" LP (Columbia EMI) 1967 (UK)

Beat me to it. If you hadn't posted My White Bicycle I would have. Great song.

Agreed. I woke up this morning with it playing in my head for some reason... Got to go with your gut instinct!

Sadly, I discovered Tomorrow via Neil's Heavy Concept Album!

If I remember correctly, Peewit, Neil and his pals also very nearly destroyed Traffic's "Hole In My Shoe"!

Is that pic "The Prisoner" related? Whenever I see one of those big wheeled bikes, I think of "The Prisoner."

Maybe I've got the show on my brain because, just a few minutes ago in my web-trollings, I saw that a new version is in the works, starring Sir Ian McKellen and Jim Caviezel.

Good question. I wanted to put a picture credit on the post but I couldn't find anything, so I don't know.

The Prisoner was great. It's difficult to imagine that any remake could do it justice ; god help us if it's another "Italian Job" or "Get Carter".
