Street of the Day #2188

Laurel needed help over lunch today, so I borrowed Anna’s bicycle and took streets from App Academy to Laurel’s workplace. I haven’t biked at all since this bootcamp started, so even with Anna’s proportionally small bike it was lovely to go riding.

It’s a very different experience biking in the city than walking. On foot I’m constantly distracted by the crowd, the flood of different characters all flowing at different speeds, with snatches of conversation popping up every few moments. I don’t get any of that on the street, and instead I’m made aware of the city scene as a whole – the skyscrapers and wires rolling past, the road stretching on forever.

I ought to be a pigeon next, and find out what the city is like from above the rooftops.
