David Byrne hosts Bike Advocacy and the Urban Environment

11:42 AM PDT on September 24, 2009

"City Arts and Lectures will host David Byrne just in time for the launch of his new book, Bicycle Diaries, which features personal anecdotes from his wide travels and a strong argument for the way a bicycle can change our view of the world and the city in which we live. Joining him on stage will be Leah Shahum, Executive Director of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and other local guests who will address the intersection between bicycle advocacy, urban planning, civic responsibility, and the singular pleasure of seeing the world from the vantage point of a bicycle.
