Biking solo can be very meditative and reflective at times, and then again sometimes the mind simply wanders into uncharted and silly waters.
The following list is a mish-mash of both
10 REASONS WHY BIKE TRAVEL IS MORE AWESOME (as compared to car, motorhome, motorcycle etc. travel)
1. you never need to look for a gym or plan workouts during your holiday
2. you can tan while travelling, and do so in pattern formation, i.e. bike shorts tan, bike gloves tan, sock tan etc.
3. you get to wave friendly hellos to other cyclists and receive salutations in return
4. you never need to worry about getting a speeding ticket
5. you, and your legs, gain a whole new level of appreciation for terrain, mountains, weather and wind. And farm smells.
6. during the cycling you occasionally have great and easily digestible fly-protein zoom straight in your mouth, free of charge
7. you create your own heat, and air conditioning
8. honking is no longer uniquely rude or negative, it takes on a new variety of meanings: from friendly beeps of encouragement when you’re going uphill and jeers of young men eyeing your tight shorts to the predictable screams of protest by those who dont think you should be on the road with cars. ever.
9. your fuel is, by definition, edible and smells better than petrol
10. …your exhaust fumes might smell better too… But that depends on whether or not you had eggs for breakfast…!!
