  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Everyone Else Is Doing It: CarFreeBrad Year in Review

    No use trying to fight it.  Everyone and their mother is doing a “Year in Review” or “Best of List” so I guess I’ll do that to but I’m not going to think about it and just freestyle a post about 2012! First, I can’t believe this CarFreeBrad thing is still going!  I started this […]

  • Ok, I Might Need A Car

    Today was a real challenge in the CarFreeBrad world, actually the last few days have driven me to question my resolve to remain CarFree for the foreseeable future. Ironically, this internal struggle has nothing to do with any of the CarFree issues and challenges the last few days has brought to the forefront but the […]

  • What Does it Take to be “CarFree”?

      This morning I got a call that I wish I could say happened for the first time but it’s about the third such call I’ve received since launching CarFreeBrad. Today’s call was just about par for the course and started with an exasperated voice on the other end starting off with “What does it […]

  • 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. […]

  • 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 […]
