As I gain confidence and physical strength on the bike, weaving through traffic and exploring different neighborhoods, I see the city differently and try to accommodate the rhythms of movement and stillness. I.e. not piss off too many drivers or pedestrians and also not get myself killed in Sullivan Square.
My advice, that no one is asking for: If you aren’t happy, try something different. Anything different has the potential to shake up your perspective. Big or small, doesn’t matter.
