  • If your can’t duct it, f*ck it!

    I’m no bike mechanic expert but I ride everyday and put my rig through a lot of abuse over the past 364 days. At this point, I’ve realized that in order to live life CarFree you have to accept a level of uncertainty in everyday of your life and an attitude of adaptation.  I sum […]

  • Major Life Difference Between Bikers and Drivers

    So far this CarFreeBrad experiment has revealed one indisputable fact.  Forgetting your keys SUCKS way more if you travel by bike than car. The problem is based in the distance from said keys that you can travel in each instance. A driver will at worst get to his/her car, realize the missing item(keys) and have […]

  • Bunny Hopping around Boston with Hubway

    One last Hubway adventure before the bikes are packed up for the winter. I had drinks with an old friend and the Boston Founding Manager of TaskRabbit, Mike Hughes on Tuesday night.  It was a great time as we met up at Biddy Early’s and the night was perfect, 60 degrees and clear skies. He […]

  • CarFreeBrad Media Blitz!

    This past weekend I had the initial creative meeting with a talented young woman from Clark University who will be doing a documentary on CarFreeBrad over the next month or so.  It was really great to sit and talk about the experiment and get live feedback from someone.  The best part was thinking about how […]

  • Hubway “Occupy Boston” to the tune of 100,000 riders!

    After a phone interview yesterday with Worcester Magazine about the NuRide (www.nuride.com)program and the future/potential for change in the “bike-friendliness” of Worcester, I saw this and have to feel good.  Every step that Boston takes toward 100% bike-friendly status, the closer and easier it is for Worcester.  Not to mention the fact that I’ve been […]

  • Cycles of Change……all of Worcester?

    I read an article yesterday and tried to post about it from my phone but it got lost aka. I forgot to save it! The gist of the article was focused on Boston’s transformation to a bike-friendly city with the culmination coming last this past month with the launch of the Hubway bike-sharing program.  The […]

  • Earn A Bike!!!

    A program that was brought to my attention by my friends at Clark University’s Media Relations department.  It’s an awesome program that will allow all of us to learn to maintain and fix our bikes, help other young and new bikers get into cycling.  It is a great way to get newbies comfortable with cycling […]

  • Free Tune Ups!!!!!! What the ______????

    I had a grand plan to do an end of the week Rack of the Day entry to blow everyone’s mind and make me feel really good about myself as a blogger.  As seems to always be the case with CarFreeBrad.com, as soon as I come up with a good idea life steps in and […]

  • Rack of the Day: Help Me, Help You!?!?!?!

    In honor of this weeks launch of Boston’s Bike Sharing program I decided to focus on the racks that I want everyone in Boston, around Boston or traveling to Boston to look out for as they become active. Take a picture of the Hubway Racks, you on the Hubway Bikes, you on the Hubway bikes […]

  • Hubway Stations: Good or Bad?

    This was my initial reaction to my first bike sharing rack in Boston by South Station. In the hustle and bustle of all the commuters scurrying to catch their rides, I could have easily walked right by and never even noticed it. I can’t decide if this is a good or bad thing, but my […]
