You are so right about that! Traffic was very respectful and supportive. The closest I've been to that in the past was when riding on parts of the Cross Canada route during the peak time for Cross Country riders to be at that point. Today took that support to an entirely new level!
I actually wrote up a page about the experience. I tried to convey some of the fun Jakub and I experienced today. Hopefully it comes through.
The page includes a couple of pictures showing the lights and christmas tree (Jakub lost his tree sometime during the morning ride unfortunately).
It's called "Reindeers take a vacation and Santa goes Icebiking!" and there's a link to the page right off the home page at http://www.bicycletouring101.com
in the Editorials and Interviews section.
Normally I would just write my comments directly here so please forgive me this indulgence. There is a lot of text that I would need to copy over.
