Trumpets on Bicycles


After the Danish bicycle battallion post, a mate of mine in England sent me this. Trompetterkorps Bereden Wapens from Holland. Which also wraps up, in style, the post about playing instruments on bicycles.

Here's a video with the Les KRAPÔs playing at a Criticalmass in Vienna. The beginning of the video is a little bit "slow", the Criticalmass starts moving at around 1:40.

In Rio we have the Orquestra Cyclophonica. Always playing in bikes!

Take a look at the second photo at:

Yes, those are bicycles being taken ashore on D-day. I searched unsuccessfully for a similar photo of my old Militia regiment, The Royal Regiment of Canada, which landed on Juno Beach the next day.

G'day

That was neat, sort of cute :) Thanks for sharing. I posted it in the Australian Cycling Forums so hopefully it attracts some further interest downunder.

Oh dear. Our wonderful government took down the photo gallery from their website.

The photo was partially reused here:

One can just barely see the bicycles being taken ashore on D-Day.
