  • Rain Prep- SOMETHINGS HAVEN’T CHANGED(MUCH)

    It’s been almost 8 years since I was a broke as hell grad student living in a new city who wanted to learn what it’s like to live life “Bike First”. I’ve learned SO much over the years but have yet to master rain prep so this video seemed like an appropriate re-post given that […]

  • Dharmesh Shah has OnStartups….

    I’ve Got CarFreeBrad & I love it! As a fan of Hubspot from a product/customer perspective, I’ve thought about Dharmesh’s founding story quite a few times, about how Hubspot got started partially out of his experience with his blog Onstartups while a student in Boston.  Recently, I got to hear him tell the story at […]

  • How much has changed in 3 years?

    It’s refreshing to look back to a few years ago when I was surrounded by so many talented and passionate people who had come together, each with our own interpretation of making a positive impact on the world. I don’t know if this video was ever made available or widespread but it’s a great short […]

  • World CarFree Day- Repost

    A Word From CarFree Brad September 22 is World Car Free Day, and in celebration we’ve enlisted Freight Farms co-founder, Brad McNamara, to give us some insight into his decision to become car free, and his experiences over the past few years! I’ve been living “Carfree” since February 2011. I still remember the first day when […]

  • Might be on a new level….

    The CarFreeBrad journey may have just reached a whole different level of awesome with the convergence of life, biking and Freight Farms. I’ll be happy to conclude this post when details reveal themselves. Stay tuned…….

  • What’s an acceptable “ThankYou”?

    What’s an acceptable “ThankYou”?

    As soon as the weather turned this year I began to look for better places to store my bike while at home. We have less than 500 square feet of usable space in the apt and while she is endlessly understanding, the GF couldn’t love a bike(especially one covered in water/ice/snow/mud) taking up valuable space. […]

  • 2013 in review- Not Bad for 6 mths!

      Here’s an excerpt: A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,400 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people. Click here to see the complete report.

  • Selfishness. How much is too much?

    Startup and Triathlon.  Life, family, friends.  Seems to be one or the other This is the first 2 sentences of a post I started to write last summer as the tri season was in full swing and I hadn’t done even one lil sprint. As you can tell, I was torn. Well, long story short. […]

  • My Unexpected Life….

    As you well know, my post writing frequency has dropped off dramatically but I WILL NOT apologize for that.  Sure I’ve gotten some feedback from people missing my witty internal dialoque being broadcast for the world to read but I’ve also had a lot of support from people that are happy to see me not […]

  • It’s BACK! A real post & HUBWAY!

    It’s been a whirlwind few weeks with Freight Farms joining the TechStars family.  If you’re not familiar with Techstars, don’t worry you’re not alone, but it’s what you might call “Kind of a Big Deal”.  Without going into, because I’m exhausted after this week, I’ll simply say I can see why they crank out winners.
