A colleague is retiring shortly and to celebrate the event the office is preparing a short photo/video presentation.

As the chap in question is a keen cyclist, it’s going to be cycling themed, so we're looking for some suitable dialogue or audio clips to overlay with the video footage we have. Can anyone suggest any audio segments - preferably very cheesey / ‘cartoony’ – which could be used? YouTube clips would be fine as their audio tracks could be, ahem, repurposed as required.

I now pass this over to the floor for comment, thanks.

I'm guessing that you're not really after music, but I can't resist suggesting Senor Coconut's gloriously silly cover of Kraftwerk's Tour de France:

If want cheese - search for Queen's Bicycle Race (NSFW video)

Correct, it's not music I'm after, it's more like really bad, motivational / determination type dialogue, similar to Pacino (?) at 1:00m in this link:

Before I click is this SFW?

Edit - now checked on phone: yes, that's the sort of thing, thanks.

Bicycle race by Queen, Lots of popular 80's references for the non-cyclist.

I think the clip linked to rule 90 is hilarious, mainly for the music:

Rule 90 Never Get Out of the Big Chain Ring

If it gets steeper, just push harder on the pedals. When pressed on the matter, the Apostle Johan Museeuw simply replied, “Yes, why would you slow down?” It is, of course, acceptable to momentarily shift into the inner ring when scaling the 20% ramps of the Kapelmuur.

Bicycle dub by Mungo's HiFi is a classic IMO

Cheers for the suggestion but it's not a music track I needed I'm afraid.

We have a winner! That's exactly the sort of thing I was hoping for. I can cut the stills and clips I have from various cycling trips with that footage. Thanks very much, it's even more OTT than I could have imagined!

> About winning....
