Rain or shine, it was that time of the year when the city held its annual “Santa’s Sycling Soirée.” Kids and adults dressed as Santa Claus or Santa’s elves and rode their bikes into the city. A number of the streets were closed off to vehicles in order to ensure the safety of the young cyclists.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go well this year. Heated arguments broke out amongst the older cyclists. Some fought about regular versus electric bikes. Others fought over Brexit. And others seemed to fight for no reason at all.
It’s the world we live in these days.
