My Beloved Bicycle...


This is a rather strange youtube find.. and it's Swedish. Kind of the same thing... :-) A declaration of love for a beloved bicycle.

It's kitsch, it's cult, it's fresh, it's Cycle Chic.

Here's the titles in the film in English:
- RIP bicycle.
- All of our memories...
- Your noisy clunking when I pedalled...
- Your curvacious handlebars...
- Your broken headlamp...

- We miss you so much...
- And to think your life would end like this...
- You disappeared from us so suddenly...
- To rest forever on 'soptippans' hallowed meadows...
- Rest in peace, beloved bicycle...
- In memory of my bicycle. The best bicycle that ever rolled on two wheels...
- We'll never forget you...
- You'll always be in our hearts...
- Beloved bicycle.

Snea means something like oblique, wry, slanted or curvy (in Danish we would use the term 'skæve' or 'kurvede').

Interesting short film... Thanks for the English translation.

By the way, I've came across your site at Blogs of Note. The word "cycle" in your site title interested me as I am an avid bicycle rider myself...

Good day to you and happy weekend...
