During these off-season (for some of us!) months, let's stay connected to each other and to cycling by reading and discussing a book or two about cycling (at least tangentially about cycling).

Our first book was Rough Ride by Paul Kimmage.

Our second book was The Lost Cyclist by David Herlihy.

Our next book is Bicycle Diaries by David Byrne (THE David Byrne, of the Talking Heads).

"In this wide-ranging memoir, artist/musician David Byrne-who has relied on a bike to get around New York City since the early 1980s-relates his adventures as he pedals through an engages with some of the world's major cities. From Buenos Aires to Berlin, he meets a range of people both famous and ordinary, shares his thoughts on art, fashion, music, globalization, and the ways that many places are becoming more bike-friendly. Bicycle Diaries is an adventure on two wheels conveyed with humor, curiosity, and humanity" (Amazon review).

We'll probably meet at Motorco or Fullsteam in Durham (TBD) once we see what else might be on the schedule for those venues and how many people sign up for reading group.
