Is it "Grandpa's Bike" or "Grandpa Bikes"? Don't know Dutch, so fietse could be plural or possessive.

It became a national evergreen but it's sung in a local dialect where they are frugal with articles too. It means simply 'On (the) bike'. Which is usually a grandpa bike because that's the default bike.

It's about a ride on what might be the last nice day of the year and he doesn't feel like stopping, he wants to see everything and today he feels like the bike rides effortlessly and he decides to have a look over the German border, before he returns and takes another detour. It describes most of the route and the place and road names. The refrain translates as:
Who's going to spoil my day ?(rethorical)
I have tyres full of wind (that's how the dialect describes pressured air, which I think is cute)
I have nothing to complain about
I would almost say it's fine like this (in this dialect everything is understated)

Maybe it's becaue I grew up with the dialect at the age the bike meant independence, well before this song was written, but the song often pops into my head while riding. That feeling of good day, good mood, good bike and good route all in one to make it effortless is very familiar to me. The band has also made a punk song about hitting bollards that are on roads to block cars from entering, also very recognizable but not as a lasting feeling.
