When you ride your bike, you start to see things from a different perspective because you are traveling faster than pedestrians, but not as fast as a car or bus. This automatically gives you a different perspective on things.
From the physical: like the wind in your face to good exercise to focusing on the cars, people (and dogs) around you.
And to the more serene: the sense of freedom, floating and sailing along.
So anytime you change your “normal” traveling perspective, remember not just to look around you, but to “see.”
What do you see?
