Tip 36: Obsess over your route.

Optimise Y

where Y 

= a*(smooth surfaces + efficient hypotenuses)


 b*(bikepaths)*(sneaky shortcuts)

c*(drunk pedestrians + slippery tramtracks)

d*(long fast downhills / steep sweaty uphills)


e*(taxis + cops + beer can-throwing SUV drivers + holier-than-thou vehicular cyclists)^2

f*(people to admire your style / avoiding that cafe where the cute waitress saw you fall off that time) 


h*(Red lights + puddles)

BONUS TIP: If maths is not your thing:  Optimal route-finding is a personal expression of the discourse between the cultural, politico-infrastructural and the physical. Discuss.
