‘Le Velo’: Cycling’s Macarena?

Posted by on June 28th, 2011 at 9:14 am

Still from “Le Velo”.
-Watch it below-

Singer, songwriter and filmmaker Robin Moore is at it again with a video that just might spur a new bike party dance craze. He calls it a “Eurotrash/Bollywood extravaganza.”

The man (a.k.a. MC Spandex) who brought us the hilarious musical ode to roadie and fixie stereotypes “Performance” and then followed it up with another smash hit, “Get Dirty” which pokes fun at mountain bikers, just unveiled “Le Velo.”

Moore has lived in Portland (where Performance was set), but now lives in San Franciso. You’ll note in Le Velo that his backup dancers are none other than bike dance troupe The Bay Area Derailleurs.

Check it out…

Will it become cycling’s Macarena? Only time (and YouTube views) will tell.

    Lessee. Taiwanese-made Belgian bike. Cali-made Capo outfit. Chinese-made helmet and specs. American cig. French bread. Check, check, and check. Hilarious Eurotrash vamp.

    The irony is so heavy handed it’s hard to tell from a badly made video that takes itself seriously. I appreciate those who sally forth, leaden rapier of wit in hand!
