For some reason. Beyond my understanding. My regular bike to work (still) draws exclamations of amazement from some work colleagues. Walking into the office on Thursday morning with my bicycle helmet in my hand, I heard the usual comments.
For the record:
Cycling to work is fun.
I don’t need to force myself to get on my bicycle. I like cycling.
I often have good ideas while cycling.
The time needed for the same route by public transport is close to identical.
The only times that I’ll take the bus or tram to work is when the road conditions are too icy and slippery, or when I don’t want to leave my bicycle over night in a dangerous place, or when I have more luggage than my bicycle can carry.
