Reason number 525 for riding a bicycle to work rather than taking a car is that occasionally (and more often than you might think) you’ll be greeted with a view like this morning’s:
Of course my fellow commuters in their cars will see the same view. They may catch a glimpse of it while dashing along.
Or they’ll see it whilst stuck in a traffic jam, but that view might be partly obscured by the car in front and the red-mist…
As a cyclist, you feel part of this view. There’s no metal and glass box isolating your senses from the world around you.
And if I want to stop and take a picture of it, I can.
