Grocery store bike rack

Crowded bike rack at the grocery store

It being Easter Sunday, and we expecting out-of-town guests, it was inevitable that something important was needed from the grocery store. I volunteered to go, threw a pannier on the Sweetpea’s rack and rolled down the quiet neighborhood streets into a cool, clear, brilliantly sunny morning.

Closed arterial

No traffic on the usually crowded arterial.

One of the residential streets I normally take to the grocery store was unexpectedly busy this morning. This was caused by the closure of a parallel arterial just two blocks away, diverting much of the traffic onto the nearby street. After making my purchase, I decided to try riding the arterial instead. If our usually quiet little street was busy with angry motorists, then perhaps the arterial would be pleasant and quiet. And that was pretty much the case. I had a great ride home, seeing only three cars on a road that’s normally packed with crazy drivers. It was a sweet little Easter surprise.
