Orchestral Manoeuvres

Copenhagen Bikehaven by Mellbin 2011 - 2484
It always amazes me to see people cycling with their large Cellos through town.

There were no such cases when I was young. But now there seems to be cycle gear for almost every instrument available.

Of course the Cellos stand out due to their size.

But there are many others who pedal around with a small stage set strapped to themselves and their bike.

Wonder if this model is as comfortable as the hard cases. But soft cases also seem to work well.

My husband makes violins, violas and cellos in Ottawa and one of his customers cycles to his shop with his cello.

Even in Ottawa!

I used to put it on my back too but side winds are tricky and if you have to further than 2km, it's a little tiring. here's a better solution:

Incidentally, helmets are required in Seattle.

A slightly more comfortable way to carry a cello on a bicycle....long distance, of course.

i have yet to see a tuba be transported by bike. That would be tricky

There is a street musician in Amsterdam who rides with his double bass(!) on his back
