1) No sense of urgency
So as you cycle along mostly traffic free routes or very minor roads, even though you may have considered some kind of destination (e.g. camp site, staying with people, a city or town, even a railway station), try to avoid the tendency to constantly check the time or the distance to your destination. Your destination is really often a place that you didn’t anticipate when you started. Once I was visiting my meditation group which was quite a distance, and I was hoping to put the folder in someone’s car for the return trip, but they were full. The host offered me a bed for the night. At first I declined as I hadn’t anticipated staying over, but I didn’t really need to go home for the night so I accepted. For me who often needs to be in control this felt really good.
