Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like

You say black I say white
You say bark I say bite
You say shark...

    My long understanding of this is that is a very simple song crafted when Freddie M was on holiday in France. Apparently a stage of the Tour De France cycle race came through the town past his hotel. He was mocking the encompassing euphoria of the event and the all-consuming passion of the supporters etc overshadowing some of the real issues of the world at the time.

    Bicycle Race by Queen can have many different meanings but I think the most obvious interpretation is about freedom. "I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride it where I like." The writer of this song just wants freedom. He believes in this and that but when it comes to critics they all agree with him because he is famous. But he really just wants freedom.

    This is a subtle earworm by "Queen" who is a known "bisexual" (queer)about "bicycle" riding, is code for coming out of the closet and being open about this sexual perversion as the obsession of his/her life, to the exclusion of all else. He/she wants to "ride" where he/she likes globally...the true agenda of faggotry today.

    The song's about going against the other people and being free.
    You say ___
    I say ____
    He is going against it, choosing his own path.....
    And this song is also about Bicycles, of course.

    Im pretty sure the song is about LSD. The bicycle he wants to ride is Hoffmans bike. Lsd was discovered by accident. After Hoffman ingested lsd he went home riding his bike, most lsd have a picture on them with hoffman riding a bike.

    I heard Freddie Mercury had a dream where a bunch of naked fat women were riding around on bicycles- hence the film clip.

    Yes, he does say "forget all your duties"... But he aslo speaks of a race (called Bicycle race). I get.. In the race of life he wants to win but by blazing his own path. Jun 29th Anon. I agree.

    Just a song poking fun at the constant competition in life. Freddie saw the Tour de France pass by his hotel and he just wanted to ride his bicycle, not race. Great use of humor to cover up such deepness-Queens best attribute

    There'll be a day when Nothing is left To you But your bicycle. Make Sure your lights Are working and there Are 2 child seats On It. Fat bottomed Girls Are known To give birth To healthy children.

    I'm not certain on this, but I'm pretty confident in my answer, as I have heard it from many others as well. The word "bicycle" was actually "bisexual" in the original song. Either they were not allowed to have such a suggestive song, or Queen just didn't want to come out and say it. Freddie Mercury himself was a bisexual, as he had two serious relationships in his life - one with a male and one with a female. There you have it.

    The song is about the simple things in life. He just wants to ride his bike. "dont wanna be a candidate for vietnam or watergate just wanna ride my bicycle:" he wants no responsibility.
