  • Personal CarFree Growth

    In yesterday’s post CarFree Conundrum, I was faced with the question of what to do when I’m forced to live BikeFree due to commuter rail schedule restrictions?

  • Commuter Rail Conundrum- CarFree to BikeFree!

  • How dirty is too dirty?

    A lesson that we should all take away from witnessing a child eat an ice cream cone(or most anything else for that matter) is that no matter how careful we are, it’s going to get everywhere on everything. Unfortunately, bicycle grease behaves much the same way prior to 6 am.  I don’t know what it […]

  • No Impact Man! Ironic Monday is Born!

    Let Ironic Monday Continue!!!! As I was running up the stairs to the office on the 6th floor today, that is a lot more stairs than I thought, I began to think about that book “No Impact Man”. The guy that lived in NYC and was able to reduce his impact down to almost nothing. […]
