I finally got to participate in the annual Fiesta Santa Barabara Cruiser Ride on Sunday. Hundreds (over a thousand?) bike riders bombing down State Street from the fountains at the Fisherman's Wharf all the way into Goleta and Isla Vista.
I'm usually really good about obeying traffic laws, but it was SO MUCH FUN to just cruise through traffic lights with a huge group of riders. That's the power of numbers! I only noticed a few car drivers get really aggressive, honking and trying to cut off cyclists, but there were also a lot of people who just smiled and let us pass through.
It was an awesome experience. I already can't wait to do it again next year.
