  • Oops, my life choices! Living in the time of Covid-19

    A few days ago I sent this tweet inspiring a full post because this is an issue I’m going to need to put some brainspace toward and why not do that in public… I architected my life with a clear thesis. Minimal, small, urban, walkable, alt transportation and public amenities. It was something my wife […]

  • If a tree falls in the forest…..

    You know how the rest goes but the real question becomes. If I don’t post often to carfreebrad, does it really exist? Thanks to the internet, the answer is yes.  With that in mind I wanted to put this post up to welcome any newcomers to the site.  I write here very seldom these days […]

  • 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 […]

  • LAZY REPOST ALERT- SOMETHINGS HAVEN’T CHANGED(MUCH)

    I made this video on October 19, 2011 while living in Worcester, MA. It’s kinda’ sad how much of my rain routine hasn’t changed.  The one positive sign of learning, is my foot solution. I’ve iterated to something that “kinda” works unless it’s really coming down or I go thru a big puddle or ride […]

  • 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 […]

  • What Hell Is That……a dinosaur?

    Sometimes in my carfree life journey, I wish my brain could just dump it all on the page because every time I try to write my fingers can’t keep up and it comes out as complete jibberish.  I’ve been having one of those weeks! Although, I’m really excited some recent handlebar mods and eager to […]

  • 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 […]

  • Long Time Coming…keep waiting!

    In my last post(months ago), I hinted that my Carfree life and work was about to go to the next level.  That was a very true statement that I’ll be elaborating on soon(I sorta’ promise) but for now you’ll just have to trust me. It’s not that I’ve lost my inspiration to write posts on […]

  • 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…….
