But on the wide road with plenty of room, people were going at all sorts of speeds and that made it that much more fun. I don't remember feeling like that on a bike since I was 12.
I have to kind of laugh at all these people who came out against the event because they couldn't get any kind of point to it. Why does there have to be a point other than allowing people to enjoy their city in a weird way?
I really enjoyed goofing around in the street, and watching others playing too.
Play doesn't need to be loaded with meaning.
