Christmas Biking on London’s Not-so-Empty Street

Christmas Day is Barclays Cycling Day because Public Transit on Break. We thought it would be a perfect day for biking in empty London streets

Well, the city wasn’t as empty as we imagined.

We did make it  to the City Centre in one piece if not considering the sweat we dripped and a few pounds we dropped. Most of the stores were closed except some Italian and Chinese restaurants. But that didn’t stop many people from heading there to enjoy the quietness of London. We walked through the peaceful SOHO to the surprisingly packed and busy Chinatown, then headed to the relatively empty but still quite busy Regent Street. London was still restless, even on the Christmas day.

Oh… and biking back home was like hill!
