David Byrne: The Bicycle Diaries

David Byrne, former Talking Heads frontman, visual artist, documentary film maker, essayist, environmentalist and ... um ... avid bicyclist.

The Bicycle Diaries are

wide-ranging, but most speak in some respect to his central theme that healthy cities are cities that are bicycle-friendly. The revolution Byrne wants is one that creates and protects accessible, interesting, human-scale urban spaces–places where people can get around by foot or bike without feeling like deer during the hunting season.
