We’ve posted several items about the Bay Trail here on the West County blog and now we can pass along the news that Mr. Talking Head, David Byrne, has discovered the sights and mysteries of the East Bay portion of the trail, posting impressions and pictures on his blog.

Byrne, who was in the Bay Area for a Feb. 5 appearance at the Castro Theatre in San Fancisco for Sketchfest, went on a group bike ride Feb. 6 on the trail.

Along the way he discovered the Albany Bulb, writing that “This has to be the most bucolic hobo village ever.”

A tip of the bicycle helmet to Brian Drayton of cycling advocacy group Richmond Spokes for bringing the link to Byrne’s blog entry to our attention.
