  • It’s just not gonna’ catch on! Sorry Soccer.

    I hate to be the one to break the news to everyone who will be doing human interest stories over the next few weeks but it’s not going to happen. Women’s soccer is not going to catch on in any major way in the USA because of the women’s world cup run. Don’t shoot the […]

  • “It just got real”! Day One!

    It has taken about 5 months of living CarFree and almost exactly one month to the day for my bike commute to become routine.

    “Move over Lycra-bottomed bikers, racing past in a flash of blinding neon, and couriers, weaving through traffic in edgy-looking gear. A growing number of cyclists are taking to the streets for transportation without changing into special apparel.” Cyclists forgoing bike clothes to commute in heels and suits – The Boston Globe.

    About a month ago while I was studying business in Northern Europe at a university in Sweden, I was able to track down a custom bike in Copenhagen Denmark that had been intriguing my for weeks and it produced some rather memorable posts for CarFreeBrad.com.  The now infamous “Sperm Bike”! To explain, my father has […]
