Who’s behind this blog? Just a chica trying to live lightly and happily in this world.
I love my bike. And I love my running shoes, hiking boots, bare feet, and the legs that get me places. I love travel, and there’s no better way to travel than by your own human power.
Forget the idea of long, motor-driven road trips, speeding down the highway in a convertible, or schlepping all your things (or children) in a minivan. I promise, anything you already do by car can be done by bike or foot with just a few modifications. And with a whole bunch of benefits:
-exercise ingrained into your daily routine, without having to muster the willpower to go to a gym
-being outside, everyday
-a good separation between work and home
-a sense of community with other cyclists (have you ever felt a sense of community with other drivers?)
-doing good by the environment
-saving a boatload of money on gas and insurance
-and most of all, cheesily enough, a huge sense of fun and excitement.
Not owning a car is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. And you can do it too. Whether you’re looking to go completely car-free or simply to reduce your dependence on fossil fuels, this website will hopefully inspire your sense of adventure and belief in car-free possibilities.
