Calling all cyclists!

Cyclists! What do you do when you're in transit?
I wanted to do a feature on my blog about this.... At a push I'd have to compare my cycle journeys to being in the shower: I'll finish off conversations with witty come-backs I didn't have at the time, hum or sing to myself (and sometimes make up songs too, not that I'm much of a composer!), relive past embarrassments, plan my day/shopping/etc.... It's an opportunity for me to catch up with myself. I rarely listen to music, mostly because I constantly use my hearing to stay aware of what's going on around me.

I was curious as to how other people use their cycle time - do you listen to music? catch up on calls (hands-free of course!)?

Please let me know if you'd rather your comment were not used for Furs, Flowers and Lace cycle across London. Even so, please respond anyway as I would love to know!

Hi there!
When I'm on the bike, it's a 50/50. 50% of the time I'm finishing thoughts that have been running through my mind (usually with a song that's stuck in my head for the past few days). The other 50% I'm noticing how different and nice the area I live in looks from the seat of a bicycle as compared to in a car. I notice things I've never seen before and probably wouldn't be able to if I was commuting by car (the pelican flying parallel to the bridge I'm on), the sound of the water as I pass...noting a little pathway through the woods that I never noticed before and want to check out later. How the wind feels on my face or the sun, etc.
My bike is my zen time. I love it and need it in order to feel ..sane..throughout my busy hectic life.
