There are a lot of motivations for commuting by bicycle.
Some do it just because they like biking.
Others do it for environmental reasons or for the economics.
Something bizarre compels us to bicycle when most of us have automobile alternatives.
I like all the reasons, but mostly, I just love getting exercise outside to start my day. Days that I cannot bicycle to work are bad days for me.
Usually, I am the only person at work who noticed which way the wind is blowing each day. I have a reason to pay attention to the weather forecast on the morning news. I actually think about what I am having for breakfast to make sure it is just the right amount of fuel to get me to work and keep me going until lunch, but I have to be careful not to eat too much or else the ride becomes human suffering 101.
