By modifying the pedal arrangement of a bicycle, air is pumped through the hollow frame, exiting through the end of the handlebars.
Holes are created where the hands are normally placed allowing the cyclist/musician to play tunes as he/she travels (notes created as per a recorder, for example).
Whole orchestras could be assembled using modified exercise bikes.
(?) Steve Roberts' "Almost Been There, Done That"
Forget about holes in the handlebars and, indeed, about pumping air through the frame to begin with. A much better solution has once been proposed, but never implemented, by Steve Roberts, him of the BEHEMOTH, and now Microship "fame". [ianf, Mar 09 2001]

||Or are you just talking about the wind section of an orchestra?
||The orchestra is probably a duff (hmmmm.....Duff!) idea - but a variation on a brass band could be created instead.
||Another thought occurs - marching bands could become cycling bands.
||Is a bicycle a solo and a tandem a duet?
||They could work for Buy-A-Band!
