What a wonderful ode to urban biking by David Byrne.
Maybe it’ll jar me into doing something I’ve had on my mind for a while.
A year ago, I started this limited-run column for Bicycling, and I switched to a fancy, finicky road bike. It’s a Felt Z5, and I love it; but it’s not really meant for the stuff Byrne writes about. It’s a bike-shorts and special clip-in shoes bike. I really want to drag my old Raleigh, with the panniers, out of mothballs and get back to practical biking-for-errands and biking to work.
