There's a certain amount of freedom involved in cycling: you're self-propelled and decide exactly where to go. If you see something that catches your eye to the left, you can veer off there, which isn't so easy in a car, and you can't cover as much ground walking.

I knew I wanted to have a doll of myself on the cover. I thought, I wanna see myself as a Ken doll.
