T.A. Rides with Peñalosa & David Byrne!

Sometimes we get to have a little fun...

On the morning of Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer's historic "Manhattan on the Move" transportation conference, our hero Enrique Peñalosa met up with the staff of Transportation Alternatives to ride up to the event.

Look how handsome all those well-dressed advocates are! And who is that with them? Special guest star: David Byrne from The Talking Heads!

Clarence Eckerson, Jr. has been making fantastical transportation media in NYC since the late 1990s. He's never had a driver's license and never will.

    I wish that Mr. Penalosa's bike was a better fit for him. He looks a tad uncomfortable on it. Enjoyed the video anyway and I am glad to see that helmeted and un-helmeted riders can peacefully co-exist in the US.

    Hypnotic! I want to ride with T.A. especially with that music.

    I've been commuting and road riding for many years. I'd love to see separated bicycle lanes in Buffalo. It's a wonderful city (no kidding) and it could be much more bike friendly. Thank you for this website.

    I was down in the City and have found that I love walking the City as well. It's good for you and good for seeing the city in detail!
    I would have to say that biking it could only make it better! Rich

    Enrique Peñalosa was a part of the big transformation in Bogotá. Love him to death. However, if want give example of how cool bicycling is, he has to wear a helmet. Love the bike routes in NYC.
