  • After 6 Months Off, It’s gotta’ be good! Right?

    I wish I could say that I’ve taken the last 6 months to build up a backlog of witty, insightful posts that will blow your mind and leave you changed forever but that would be a HUGE lie! I’ve been eyeball deep in Freight Farms this entire year.  I can’t say I regret it as […]

  • Am I a better person?

    This CarFreeBrad experiment turned lifestyle has been going for somewhere near 5 years and I’ve learned a lot during that time. Now that there’s been enough time, broken bikes, scrapes and experiences under my belt I’ve started to ask myself a compelling question. Has a bike first lifestyle made me a better person? When it […]

  • I’M BACK!

    Unfortunately, I let my domain lapse for a few weeks and just now have been able to get CarFreeBrad.com back online.  It’s not “in action” yet.  To actually create content is a bit more involved.  But topics that are on my mind: How many riding days have been lost due to Boston’s winter? Does CarFreeBrad […]

  • 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 […]

  • 32 Hour Workday and I Shouldn’t Be Driving….

    In case you haven’t noticed, my posts have been few and far between lately.  That’s no accident.  Sure I’ve been pretty busy but who isn’t?  It’s been more a result of “drivers remorse”. Last week, Freight Farms was in the home stretch on number of projects and one of these required me to transport 400 […]

  • An Overlooked Survival Tool: The Bicycle

    I can’t say enough about bikes and biking.  Even at times when I hate bikes, I love them.  On its worst day, a bike still beats all other modes of transport in so many ways.  Just add one more to the list- Survival Tool! Before Hurricane Sandy took out power, subways, buses, and some roads […]

  • Serenity on Shrewsbury St

    This will be the last time I apologize for not posting more.  I’m busy and my computer screen only works about 46% of the time. Anyway, I’ve had the distinct pleasure of not having time or money to fix my busted commuter bike over the last few weeks and had to use my road bike. […]

  • “Car Free” is on the Front Page of the Globe!

    For all the obvious reasons I love this article about traffic being down in Kendall Square in spite of all the development and growth.  By far my favorite aspect is the  opening scenario that so clearly outlines my Pro-Bike stance for getting around.  Bike first, train second, drive third is what CarFreeBrad is all about. […]

  • Is Looking Cheating?

    The Tour De France rolls into its final week and I’ve barely watch any of it, my fantasy team is a complete disaster and the crank on my commuter bike is still busted.  Needless to say I need a nice distraction from all this. That brings me to the question of the age-old past time […]

  • My Fantasy is 21 days long and involves spandex! Want to be a part of it?

    It’s that time of year again!  Tour De France time.  I only play one fantasy sports game each year and this is it.  You might not believe me but it’s a lot of fun and you don’t even have to be a bike fan.  Don’t trust me on this one, just sign up and try […]
