Commuting affects your mental health, your physical health, and even the way you think about other people. And these changes are more profound than you might think.
A lot of the stuff we buy is already on its way to being obsolete as soon as it's pulled from the box. So, with your phone, computer, and appliances all marching inexorably towards the graveyard, how much use should you really expect out of an old bicycle?
I have no idea why this sheep was just hanging out on this road, or why it decided to race this cyclist, but I am going to imagine that it simply stands in that spot all day every day, just waiting for some dummy on a bike who needs a lesson in what real speed looks like.
