Why You Should Explore Cities by Bike [Momentum Mag]

One of the best things about seeing a cit by bike is feeling the wind in your hair while you explore diverse neighborhoods, such as Washington, DC's Chinatown, pictured here.
There is something inexplicably thrilling about using a bicycle to explore a strange new city, its streets pulsating with life. The glass and steel of buildings shimmer with a certain magic, street life seems more vibrant and the smells and sounds of a metropolis at full tilt threaten to overwhelm your senses. When you’re on a bicycle, you can’t help but feel completely alive and immersed in the moment. Instead of merely gazing passively through window glass, you experience and interact with a place in an immediate way.
