  • Constraints Create Style

    Over this last holiday season, I conceded defeat and admitted I needed to overhaul my wardrobe.  What had started as a quirky convenience was becoming borderline weird.  My wardrobe consisting of jeans, a gray t-shirt, black zip up sweater and boots/sneakers(depending on activity that day) was close to transitioning to the weird side.  I don’t […]

  • Stay safe winter cycling with super easy DIY signal gloves

    If you are one of these brave souls, though, visibility is key and these incredibly easy DIY signal gloves from Instructables user Harmless Matt won’t put a huge dent in your wallet and will hopefully keep them out of you and the bike, too.             Stay safe winter cycling with super easy […]

  • 350 Days and I Still Forget Underwear!

    Anniversaries can have a tendency to make people nostalgic and refective but that hasn’t seemed to happen for me.  CarFreeBrad keeps chugging along documenting my myriad of mishaps but at least I’m learning or at least I thought I was. I had visions of making this an elaborate post pulling pieces I had written on […]

  • Foot Problem Solved! Bring on Winter!

    If you have followed CarFreeBrad, listened to CarFree Radio or watched the video tips you know how I have struggled to figure out what to do about my feet.  The obvious solution is to throw on some big ‘ol bad-ass boots and power through.  That is a great solution for some days but not all.

  • Friday Light Thoughts & Product Review

    After forgetting my gloves the other night when I had to ride home in the rain as the temperature plummeted, I realized I need to evaluate my glove situation.  I need a better solution.   Still the most pressing issue as the snow threaten more and more with each forecast is the footwear problem.  I […]

  • CarFree Hygiene

    I had a revelation today.  It is now Friday and I have showered at my condo exactly once this week.  I’ve stopped in to brush the teeth, change and head back out quite a few times but nothing more than a touch up and costume change. You may be thinking that CarFreeBrad is a dirty […]

  • Pegged Pants, Skinny Jeans and AC Slater

    I may have missed the boat when “pegged pants” where in style.  I can vaguely remember my older sister spending what seemed like hours making sure her pants were pegged just right and I never quite got it. By the time I was old enough for fashion necessities(like pegging my pants) it had fallen way […]

  • OH GOD, I’m wearing Pleated Pants!

    Near disaster avoided this morning! I have meetings all day then a class this afternoon so I thought I should look presentable.  Considering the fact that I haven’t been home for more than 45 minutes(while awake) this week, most of  my clothes are dirty so it was time to dig deep into the closet. I […]
