12 March 2007: The word from San Francisco and a singing bicycle prototype

Singing bicycleWe test out Andy Cox’s prototype singing bicycle, for use in the performance of Godfried Willem Raes’s Second Symphony. Down the line from San Francisco, Jon Winston fills us in on Bay Area cycle culture and his own Bikescape bicycling podcast.

This is the last in the current season of the Bike Show. Thanks to everyone who made it happen, and to everyone who’s tuned in. We’ll be back in the early summer.

Update (November 2007): The Symphony was performed in July 2007. You can hear a recording in this show.
