David Byrne, former Talking Heads frontman, has a new book hitting shelves this month about his bicycle travels throughout the world.
It offers his thoughts on using bikes to transform cities, change power and fuel balances and is full of photos from places like Berlin and Buenos Aires. He also discusses topics like world music, urban planning, cultural dislocation, etc…fairly all encompassing. It even includes tips on bicycle clothing and safety.
Byrne, a long time cycling advocate has used a bike as his main source of local transportation in NYC for decades, and has helped design some of the cities bike racks, too.
Put it in your Amazon wish list now.
