The opposite is true, I do mean that, at least from what I've been experiencing. Motorbikes slowed down as I was crossing the street, cars letting me pass first on intersection, and there were hundred of times that I thought i'm gonna get honked at and off my bike, but it didn't happen. I am amazed. And it do feel great to see the cake is being sliced neatly and nicely for a change.
Enough with the traffic, sure, riding bike takes more drops of sweat and efforts than the engined ones where you only have to close your eyes and it's moving. But hear me out. Riding bike definitely isn't ideal on a summer day or when you have to rush somewhere, but that's kind of the points. On a bike, you're not so much just transporting from places to places anymore, rather more of you're planning your day throughout. You wake up and leave the house early, now that getting anywhere takes time. You avoid going anywhere unnecessary, and even plan the route you're gonna take. And about the heat, well, there's nothing a good cup of cold drink won't fix.
