Bike Ed Song

  • Mark Bainbridge
  • Bike-ed Song

Verse 1

Hit the road                                       Travel the highway

Moving along                                    Exploring the by-ways

Seeing the world                               Moving right on by,

God’s Creation                                  Discovering it my way, …


On my bike I travel the road,

But be careful,

Always follow the road code.
