In connection to the projects collaboration with Exit Art and Earth Day in April 2011, two Danish Biomega bikes were donated to the project. One was given to Matthew Modine and the other was handed over to David Byrne to be pimped out with 12,000 Swarovski crystals and later raffled off by Exit Art to benefit their excellent non-profit Arts organization. Our good friends from Gold Mine Shit House came to the Exit Art Benefit event and did silkscreens on clothes and such that people brought along, along with live music and a lovely party.

The bike was won by Sinclaire Marber and if all goes well, can be seen in the future at one of the Art exhibitions in connection to the project as a sculpture.

If you have not read David Byrne's "Bicycle Diaries" yet, you should!

An avid cycler in addition to the lead singer of Talking Heads, wrote and arranged the following video, which is a "poem to the bicycle and the people who ride them." This was shown at the 2011 International Green Energy Economy Conference in Washington DC
