  world's only bicycle-touring cellist performs in Mountain View
By Alison Chaiken 
Chang recently rode in a 5,000-mile bike tour called The Pleasant Revolution with the band Ginger Ninjas. They set off from Northern California and traveled — with a bike trailer for his cello — all the way to Mexico. They would pull up into a town and talk to people at different bars trying to find a gig. As far as he knows, he's the world's only long-distance bike-touring cellist.

Courtesy of the Mountain View Voice. Chang performs for FREE an eclectic mix of classical, hip-hop and "generally wacky" on Friday March 27 at 8 PM at the Dana Street Roasting Company at 44 W Dana St, Mountain View, CA 94041, reachable at (650) 390-9638.

  What a pretty bicycle, she said
By Yokota Fritz 
Greetings and thank you to all those visiting from whatever mailing list posted a link to Cyclelicious. I really like the Luka Bloom song that you all are listening too. You might also consider watching this video, which uses the same music but with different photos.

Some time ago I created a compilation CD of my favorite bicycle songs that included "The Acoustic Motorbike." Another song from this CD is Bicycle Song by Orbit. Click on the link to Amazon for a preview, and instead of a CD these days you can download it to your MP3 player. The bicycle is a metaphor for something else but it's still cool to listen to.

  The Acoustic Motorbike
By Yokota Fritz 
I've loved Luka Bloom's "Acoustic Motorbike" (the album and the title track) ever since I first heard it a few years ago. Somebody put the music to a slide show and posted it to YouTube. Bloom captures the vibe of cycling wonderfully with his acoustic music and lyrics.

You see whenever I'm alone
I tend to brood
But when I'm out on my bike
It's a different mood

I work my legs
I pump my thighs
The antidote to my emotional ills
A motion built upon human toil
Nuclear free needs no oil
But it makes me hot, makes me hard
I never thought I could have come this far
Through miles of mountains, valleys, streams
This is the right stuff filling my dreams
So come on, get up on your bike
Ah go on, get up on your bike.
