Funny how much more you notice on a bike than in a car.

thing I've noticed is: if you leave work and get straight in a car, you're still "at work" mentally when you arrive home (regardless of the length of journey). If you get on a bike, work is completely forgotten within the first two minutes, probably because of how much more you notice!

I've found that as well.

It's an entirely more organic experience, isn't it?

I agree. I always have this feeling that as I cycle away from the office I am mentally cycling away from my concerns there. maybe I notice more of my surroundings - I feel more connected to them than in a car - but sometimes realised how mentally absent I am as I travel home. My mind is just elsewhere.

I'm loving it. I used to ride everywhere when I was young, but have always loved driving, so the bike took a bit of a back seat as I got older. I agree though, this is a really good fun way of getting work out of your head and I'm already setting myself little challenges for time and spotting jumps to do etc. as well as noticing the surroundings more :)

when i had to commute across leicester, stuff like time challenges and racing traffic turned a drab journey into a wild adventure. Here in Pembrokeshire time stands still, so no point rushing!
