4. Networking. Cyclists, as usual, are very friendly and open persons. Switching to a bike, you will notice others like you, spinning the pedals along the streets. Smiles reciprocity will soon become the new acquaintance
5. Your city. Commuting by bike you are highly mobile. Your routes are flexible, you could easily bypass the traffic, you might discover some new interesting spots in the city you though you know entirely. Bike riding lets you see the city at a different angle
6. Mood. Tested on practice and, perhaps, already proven by scientists that sports change the mood for good. Physical exercises on the open air allowing you to get from A to B guarantee the positive mood.

10. Curiosity. You can always stop your bicycle next to some interesting things. Whatever it is, new shop window, ice-cream trolley or a flower bed. You can always put the time on pause to enjoy the things around and avoid any rush, as afterwards you can always push your pedals just a bit harder to repair on omission
11. Time. Once you have done the required route by bike, you can be sure of how long it takes and only a few factors could affect it… Going the same way regularly you could further optimize the timing
12. Ecology. Cycling is all about ecology… Honestly, nothing to add
