I’ll start with a confession. Since I got my driver’s license I have not biked as much as I used to.
Nowadays taking the bike out for a spin is only for recreational purposes. If the weather is okay if I got too much spare time or if the fuel tank in my car is almost empty (it usually is).
You see the world around you in a different way on a bike, compared to the fast blur the whizzes by when you’re driving.
Smells, both pleasant and not so very pleasant enter your nose, the sunlight hits your skin and for a little while, you might even feel healthy for a brief moment.
Biking lanes and the alternative roads that are not suited for cars also add to the experience and invite you to stop and maybe capture the place, the mood, and the moment through the lens of your camera.
Here are some photos that I’ve captured on some of my bike trips.
