Everything's intentional. It's just filling in the dots.
There's a certain amount of freedom involved in cycling: you're self-propelled and decide exactly where to go. If you see something that catches your eye to the left, you can veer off there, which isn't so easy in a car, and you can't cover as much ground walking.
Analysis is like a lobotomy. Who wants to have all their edges shaved off?
Cycling can be lonely, but in a good way. It gives you a moment to breathe and think, and get away from what you're working on.
Cycling is a joy and faster than many other modes of transport, depending on the time of day. It clears the head.
