Why I like Riding on Holidays

Why I like riding on holidays-I get to explore places that I wouldn't normally, like the mall.


  1. I had the exact same experience today. Not the mall, but out riding without hardly anyone around. The lack of traffic was very nice.

  2. Best time to visit the mall.

    Is the new bike performing as expected?

  3. Was the mall actually closed?

    Sometimes I forget that other parts of the US/world close down for Easter. Portland is so secular, even the library is open on Easter Sunday. It was the polar opposite to Winnipeg when I visited years ago. The grocery stores were closed on Good Friday!

  4. Mark-I like that ghost town feel to holiday rides. Christmas morning and New Years day are the best.

    Pondero-So far everything is working well.

    Adventure-Yes sir, we still enjoy our religious holidays down here.

    Gunnar-Thanks. It turned out much nicer than I thought it would.

  5. I guess I got a little jaded about malls. The Northeast Mall was on my v1 commute and there was rarely anyone about when I passed by on my way to work around 7AM. Occasionally, I'd see a street sweeper running about but that was about it. I must confess, however, that most times of year it was a bit darker than in your photos.
