Not content to let David Byrne swallow up all the celebrity cyclist air, longtime Village Voice gossip columnist Michael Musto wants the world know he's a big bipedal pedaler. In this fun Streetfilms video, Musto proves his longtime passion for cycling by riding around town on his favorite girl's bike (sans helmet!), and urging others to join him. "Nobody used to ride a bike in New York," Musto declares. "It was just me. Then the economy went down and people aren't willing to spend a lot of money on transportation and they realize a bike is really a cheap way to get around. Also, the environment became an issue. I don't care about that, but I'm glad somebody does."

But after riding his bike in New York for "at least 25 years," Musto's also kind of over it, because all the new bike lanes have taken away his edge: "It's become a little too banal for me now, a little to mainstream. People are always saying, 'Oh, it's so dangerous, I'm so scared.' It isn't really. And you know what, most accidents happen in the home."
