One year of carfree living

I sold my car exactly one year ago. As of today, I have been car-free for one year.

During the past year, I've ridden in the dark, and during the day. In gorgeous weather, in the rain, and through the snow.

I've put my bike on the bus. I've cursed the bus on snowy days when I needed it and it simply didn't come.

I've fallen down.

I've puzzled over how best to carry stuff to work, and thrilled over new roads and alternate routes.

I've motivated coworkers to occasionally bike to work.

I've had a lot of fun.

And here starts one more year of one less car.

That is great! I just purchased a book on going car free... I have a ways to go car free.
