«Many ways lead to Rome», just like my everyday bicycle track. Each morning I choose, between three different routes through the city, to get to university. Each way is, as such, equally exhausting, stressful and annoying. Many crossings, a lot of traffic, and waiting at red lights can make the journey quite unappealing. This work illustrates how many crossings I must wait to turn, or cross the road. Each symbol represents a crossing within a distance of a hundred meters: the center point is myself on my bicycle and the bold line shows my route. The symbols themselfs are not sorted by a particular route so that you can choose by yourself which way you want to go.
