Hello!

John Deacon has "Bike it" (inside an oval circle) on the 20 years Hollywood Records edition of The Game.

What does it mean?

Thanks!

I'm fairly sure it was just in keeping with the whole leather/biker look the that the video (and Freddie) was going for.

It is, however, a very cool Tshirt. You can get it here, by the way. http://www.printfection.com/legendwears. I bought it a couple of months back.

....Just need the Jacket now!

The Bike It logo represents the use of getting on your bicycle and using this form of transport, rather than the alternative of driving your car.

Thanks for your replies!

This gave some new thoughts, because I've always thought it was bad language of some kind. I asked my English teacher when I was 10 years old, but he didn't want to explain it to me because it was meaning something bad.

So, thank you!

I'm guessing that phrase had a far different meaning for Freddie...

Apparently Freddie really wanted John to wear a T-shirt that said 'Toast Rack'.

'Bike It' was a compromise.
