Merry Christmas to Me!
But oh, on this day, there was not a car in sight, and I must say I had a smile on my face. It won't happen again until next Christmas (there being no cars, not the smile), but for the moment, it was bliss. It got me to thinking how if just 100 people committed to one day a week riding a bike or walking to work or school or the store instead of driving a car, how fewer cars there would be on the road and that maybe, this town would start to think about how to make our roads safer for bikers and pedestrians. It is a dream. But on that perfect Christmas morning bike ride, I got to glimpse what it could be like. I'm still smiling.
