Slowly, but surely, we have become surrounded by screens.
Every day a new gadget appears that promises to make life better, but somehow ends up making things just a little more complex.
A remarkable thing happens when you leave your desk and let your phone battery run dry. Distractions disappear. A weight that you didn’t know was even there is is lifted from your shoulders.
Budnitz Bicycles are built for analogue afternoons. Fast, smooth, incredibly lightweight — and simple.
With your mapping apps off, the breeze becomes your compass. You find yourself riding down streets and alleyways you’d never noticed before. There’s no deadline and no real destination. You take a lazy lap around the park.
Smiling faces line this path. Pedalling through green fields, you realize that posing for photos is no match for living through moments you'll never forget.
The trunk of an old oak becomes an ideal resting place. Pages of your favorite novel turn quickly. Before you know it, the afternoon warmth melts away. Your shadow is long on the grass.
As you make your way home under a setting sun, you can’t help but notice smalls lights appearing all around you. Passers-by gaze into the cool glow of handheld devices. Living room windows flicker incessantly as another infomercial pitches the latest shortcut to happiness.
All at once you realize that there are no shortcuts. There's just this ride, and and the next one, and the anticipation of another analogue afternoon.
