Bicycle jam.

How about that? Sounds like something that'd only happen in one of those photos from Shanghai, and most definietely not around here. Even if this is a town of bikers I've never been in a real crowd of bikes the way I suddenly found myself today. Must have been the five 'o clock rush or something, fifteen or so people just crowding up at one streetlight.

The thing that struck me was this: if we'd all been in cars we would really have been a decent jam, and made a whole lot more noise and pollution as well. Plus there wouldn't have been any smiles over the situation or people talking to eachother from their own vehicles.

Bikers have more fun ...
