  • I’ll Take a Near Miss over a Close Call Anyday!

    I had a driver that was very upset at my existence the other day and the experience got me thinking about something that every cyclist has/will encounter, the Near Miss! It’s an irrational driver who is very upset at your very existence on his or her road and believes that your disdain for their internal […]

  • A Sad Day Indeed!

    It’s that time of year again, everyone is happy and CarFreeBrad is sad.  Here’s the story! I was taking the late train into work at the Freight Farms office because I had a long week and decided to cut myself a break.  Who would have known trying to finish a couple of grad degrees would […]

  • NEED IT!!!! And You’ll Want it to!

    I need to get one of these bikes.  If nothing else, I want the lock feature.  Check it out, there is a feature for everyone. Audi e-bike in Motion – YouTube.  

  • Idiots: Two vs Four Wheels!

    Video Here This video is a great explanation that shines the spotlight on drivers as well as cyclists.  I love that he doesn’t pretend that cyclists ride like idiots just like drivers.  I’d be willing to bet the same guy who rolls thru a stop sign on his bike, goes home gets in his car […]

    I don’t know if I should be disappointed, proud, or what.  Without further adieu the top two are: Busch beer camo cans Busch camo cans 2011 Like I said. Very Revealing!  Good to know what posts really make a difference in the world.  But…

  • Goggle Weather! Time to embrace the layer.

    It’s that time of year again. As the whole world seems to be holiday shopping, trimming trees and singing carols, I begin to dread/look forward to battling the elements. This year I’ve decided I’ll learn from the past and abandon any notion that I’m cool or fashionable.  It’s all function, all the time.  Freezing rain […]

  • Can You Believe This Was One Year Ago?

    At holidays I like to look back at old posts to see what I was up to and thinking a year or so ago. I read this post and realized how much has happened in the past year of my CarFreeBrad.com life and how much I have to be thankful for.  In short, I’ve been […]

  • “Like” vs”Like the Idea of…”

    As is often the case, my thoughts began to wonder as I walked to the train the other day sparked by someone’s post about “Sunday Funday”.  All I could think about was how much I like “Sunday Fundays” and how I couldn’t wait until my next one. But as I thought more about it, I […]

  • Driving In Traffic- Dangerous but I Love it!

    Yet another post that my mom will love! If you ride a bike, you have to deal with riding in traffic.  It’s a fact of life that we all must get used to.  I just happen to really enjoy it, I don’t know why but I do.  But I must preface this statement with some […]

  • Why Startup Founders Are Always Sad. A Rare Glimpse into Me Off the Bike!

    I try really hard to keep my Bike life and my Startup Life separate but in reality I can’t.  It’s not reasonable to just not mention the part of my life I go to sleep thinking about and wake up itching to get to work on. I put on a brave face and a lot […]
