  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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. […]

  • Seriously, You Need To Have One of These!

    If you plan to be car free and like me have only the most basic working knowledge of bike maintenance, you need a great bike mechanic friend.  I was just ridiculously lucky that my buddy Will turned out to be a bike wiz and super enthusiastic to help and/or talk bikes.  I don’t bring much […]

  • 2012 Boston Midnight Marathon Bike Ride

    Now that the hoopla around Marathon Monday has died down and the weather is slightly more seasonal, I think it’s prudent to comment on one of the coolest parts of the Boston Marathon, the bike riders! Although I was unable to attend, this event is officially on the CarFreeBrad calendar for next year and I […]
