I dunno why, but there's been a lot more "going home" traffic recently.
This keeps me smiling as I travel @ 10mph past the long gridlocked traffic lines, then continue up the hill @ the same speed.
Bike lanes and empty sidewalks are my friend.
At the congestion on the steep hill, I'm still riding the roadside like a dirt bike. If there's foot traffic, I just wait patiently until they pass me.
I'm puzzled that I've only seen two motorized bikes on the road this year.
This island has 900,000+ residents, and just as many registered vehicles.
