  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Lance Armstrong Not Allowed to Compete in Triathlon! Doping again, really?!?!

    I’m as “anti-doping” as the next guy and was ready to hate Lance Armstrong the last time this came up.  Originally I was a fan of him as an athlete but didn’t really care about him as a person.  I ended up following the story, eventually read his book and all that and I think […]

  • Love it or Hate it, It’s Good For the Sport!

    All opinions aside, it’s always cool to watch a good highlight reel.

  • 4 Bike Laws You May Not Know About

    Newsflash!  You can’t run red lights or urinate in public because you are a cyclist and “buzzed” riding is drunk riding(in some states). Cyclists are protected by—and obligated to adhere to—many laws. But while most of them mirror vehicle laws, it’s easy for some rules to get lost in translation because, let’s face it, bikes […]

  • Bike Commuting is Just Like Life

    Some days on my ride across town, I need to think about ANYTHING other than my current ride.  Today was one such day and I began to think about bike commuting as it relates to life.  I don’t know where this thought came from but it all came together as I struggled up a terribly […]

  • Game 7- No Cable, No Problem. The Bruins Love Bikes!

    I’m spending my day crushing finals and making Freight Farm deals.  All the while, I’m just thinking about where to watch the game tonight.  As always, I’m open to suggestions.  As long as I walk peddle from my place!
