  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Why Startup Founders Are Always Sad. A Rare Glimpse into Me Off the Bike!

    I try really hard to keep my Bike life and my Startup Life separate but in reality I can’t.  It’s not reasonable to just not mention the part of my life I go to sleep thinking about and wake up itching to get to work on. I put on a brave face and a lot […]

  • “Car Free” is on the Front Page of the Globe!

    For all the obvious reasons I love this article about traffic being down in Kendall Square in spite of all the development and growth.  By far my favorite aspect is the  opening scenario that so clearly outlines my Pro-Bike stance for getting around.  Bike first, train second, drive third is what CarFreeBrad is all about. […]

  • 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 […]

  • The Generosity Overwhelms Me.

    One aspect of living car free that I’ve been forced to embrace is my need to rely on my fellow man. Whether that be the T driver, bus driver, bike mechanic or a slew of friends my ability to live and get around is now largely out of my hands. This has been a very […]

  • I Think CarFree Radio is Officially Dead

    I didn’t want to declare this nugget of  creative genius dead until I was certain.  At this point, I think I just have to call it. Time of death: March 29 6:20 pm. Cause: Laziness on the part of CarFreeBrad! Don’t worry, if I can arrange some really cool guests and have the time to […]

  • Why Dont Young Americans Buy Cars?

    I love that the major car companies are concerned that kids these days don’t seem to care that much about owning a car. This article gives a great glimpse into how scared GM is and the crazy lengths they are willing to go to connect with this new generation and make cars relevant to us. […]

  • Bicycle Commuting On The Rise

    CarFreeBrad.com at it again, just changing the game.  Sure I didn’t start this thing until just over a year ago but it seems to have had a Back to the Future type of retroactive effect on the numbers.  Don’t believe me, check the facts. Bicycle commuting is on the rise, albeit from a low base, […]

  • If your can’t duct it, f*ck it!

    I’m no bike mechanic expert but I ride everyday and put my rig through a lot of abuse over the past 364 days. At this point, I’ve realized that in order to live life CarFree you have to accept a level of uncertainty in everyday of your life and an attitude of adaptation.  I sum […]
