Bicycle Diaries by David Byrne

Beyond obsessing over our tweeds and steeds, one of our favorite pastimes also involves long tea-time conversations with well-read dandies and quaintrelles. An informed mind is a beautiful mind. We recommend Bicycle Diaries by David Byrne

Excerpt from www.davidbyrne.com

Since the early 1980s, David has been riding a bike as his principal means of transportation in New York City. Two decades ago, he discovered folding bikes and started taking them with him when travelling around the world. DB’s choice was initially made out of convenience rather than political motivation, but the more cities he saw from his bicycle, the more he became hooked on this mode of transport and the sense of liberation, exhilaration, and connection it provided. This point of view, from his bike seat, became his panoramic window on urban life, a magical way of opening one’s eyes to the inner workings and rhythms of a city’s geography and population.
