Took the Birdy for a quick evening spin. Went to Kagurazaka and there was a festival there. Road was crowded and it was difficult to cycle with all the street stall and pedestrian traffic. Oh well.

Stop by the Akagi Jinja which was off the main road. Quite a nice change from the crowded street outside.

Tried out the gear shift again and now it all seems to be working properly. Good.

Taken with Canon FD 50mm f/1.4 on Sony NEX-3.

Folded with the rack. Not as tight as I would like and needs to be attached on train. Long commute tho' (31.8 miles daily) gotta have a rack and a comfy bike.

I found that leaving the saddle extended, when carrying the folded bike under my arm, actually makes it quite manoeuverable in the train-car - when I'm trying to find a seat.

Bicycle Diaries

A renowned musician and visual artist presents an idiosyncratic behind-thehandlebars view of the world's cities

Since the early 1980s, David Byrne 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 on tour. Byrne's choice was 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 it provided. Convinced that urban biking opens one's eyes to the inner workings and rhythms of a city's geography and population, Byrne began keeping a journal of his observations and insights.

An account of what he sees and whom he meets as he pedals through metropoles from Berlin to Buenos Aires, Istanbul to San Francisco, Manila to New York, Bicycle Diaries also records Byrne's thoughts on world music, urban planning, fashion, architecture, cultural dislocation, and much more, all conveyed with a highly personal mixture of humor, curiosity, and humility. Part travelogue, part journal, part photo album, Bicycle Diaries is an eye-opening celebration of seeing the world from the seat of a bike.
