Is a bike ride creative?

Sometimes it certainly feels that way.

You pick a time, you get your gear together, and you set out to see what happens.

Same with writing and drawing: You set aside some time, you get out your pens and notebook, and you see what happens.

Paul Klee said drawing was taking a line for a walk.

Or maybe a ride?

A drawing is a paper trail.

If you use a ride tracker, at the end of the ride, you can see your trail traced on the map.

The trails look like abstract drawings or wire sculptures.
