  • 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. […]

  • 30 Degrees will take the tough out of anyone!

    I had a short ride this morning as I had to catch the 6 am train to Boston which is normally kinda’ nice.  It’s just under mile and a pretty flat ride and as long as the wind isn’t bad I can peddle easy to enjoy the time. Today, not so much!  I’m really glad […]

  • Tough Travel Day & Counting

    So I had a big travel day planned that needs a lot of things to go right. Well, so far NOT so good! The agenda was simple. Take my bag for my 4 days in Portland, OR along with my work bag on the commuter rail, hop on the silver line to the New England […]

    Two Minutes With…Brad McNamara | Worcester Mag |  Holy Cow!  I’m famous!  Ok, maybe not but it’s cool to see CarFreeBrad getting some print love.

  • What You Miss……..

    When you drive your car! Yesterday I was on the commuter rail just minding my business feeling pretty indifferent about CarFreeBrad.com because I felt like the stream of interesting things to write about had sort of dried up.  The fact is, I was wrong!  I needn’t look any further than my train ride to garner […]

  • Rack of the Day- Rich get Robbed Too!

    I won’t tell you how I ended up in Wellesley, Ma this week but I will tell you that I wore a pink polo shirt and slippers to try to fit in. It worked like a charm. I was a local within 30 seconds and fully accepted into their club. I got off the train […]

  • Last Day of Dual City CarFreeBrad!

    It has been a great summer and adding the commuter rail from Worcester to Boston has been quite an experience.  It has been great to get a taste of the “real world” commute over the past few months.  Sure, it’s summer so I haven’t had to brave the worst parts of the New England seasons […]

  • The Means and The End.

    The past few weeks I have been giving more and more thought to “why” CarFreeBrad.com.  From the beginning I made a point not to go too deep into the philosophical and wanted to allow that answer to develop over time.  The benefit of this approach is twofold.  1.) I didn’t have to start this experiment […]
