I went for a quick spin on Christmas afternoon, and was amazed at how much traffic was on the roads. I had thought it would be a great time to ride with no traffic, but no way. Cars everywhere. Where are all of these people driving on Christmas day? Most of the stores are closed and few people have to work. I don't get it. Sometimes I think people are so addicted to cars that they drive just for the sake of it -- sort of like my cycling!
