Photo from Pope Ride Facebook page

During this weekend’s Papal visit, Philadelphians got a taste of what life could be like without cars. Kids played freely on the streets, bikers rode without worrying about cars, and the city had a block party-type feel to it. Was this utopia for Philadelphians? I’m not so sure.
