Simple pleasures


What is it?


About a dead city road on a bike?


Feels almost like anarchy.

Some I know love the city tussle, racing cars for lights, finding the invisible line between helter and skelter.

But me, I love the early morning ride through once bustling and now ghost town city streets.

Brisbane – it sucks that you go to bed so early on week nights, but I love that you sleep in on Sunday’s!

What about you?
Do you like it empty?
Or do you like it full?

  1. I’m normally riding a river loop on weekends, but must say I loved riding on Christmas and Boxing Days. Nary a car in sight.
