Description

‘Byrne comes across like a post-punk Michael Palin.’ Sephen Dalton, The Times

‘An engaging book; part-diary, part-manifesto.’ Observer

David Byrne, co-founder of the group Talking Heads, has been riding a bicycle as his principal means of transportation since the 1980’s. When he tours, Byrne travels with a folding bicycle, bringing it to cities like London, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Istanbul, Manila, New York, Detroit and San Francisco. The view from his bike seat has given Byrne a panoramic window on urban life all over the world.

An enchanting celebration of bike riding and of the rewards of seeing the world at bike level, this book gives the reader an incredible insight into what Byrne is seeing and thinking as he pedals around these cities.
