Walking is doing. What did you do? I walked. To where? What, no the walk was … the very act of … I like to walk, ok?

And it’s walking alone. Walking with others can be great, but it’s a different great. It’s not therapeutic. It’s not a journey of the wandering mind that way, but rather conversation in a changing environment.

And the walk is arguably more powerful than the bike in terms of mental experience. Biking is largely the pleasure of piloting the vehicle, feeling the g’s and weaving through the sponge of traffic. But when wheeled the surroundings fly by uncomprehended, unabsorbed. The experience of the bike is the point. Walking is not motivated by the experience of shoes on surfaces.
