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…
Better Late Than Never- My Appreciation of Cambridge!
This post has been brewing for quite some time. Seriously over the last 3 months and in a more general sense over the last 4 years. I suppose as I’ve become more entrenching in technology and innovation my perspective on Cambridge has changed over the past 4 years but it has really come full circle…
CarFreeBrad Talking Freight Farms on Boston.com
In case you missed it last week in your post NYE haze and because I didn’t post it (and I know you get all your info from carfreebrad.com) here I am from Bosotn.com explaining and talking about Freight Farms. http://bcove.me/g8mrrd9g
Inaugural Winter Trip On the New Ride!!
After a few modifications to the new ride, she was ready for the open road this past evening. Overall is went well, felt weird but good. It was a really hard transition to go from a 2010 specialized road bike to a 1974 Huffy Mainliner Cruiser. Based solely on age and type you can tell…
The Search Continues
Anyone that follows the trials and tribulations of CarFreeBrad know that I’ve been without my commuter bike lately and realized it is time for a replacement. I’ve been on the hunt but that hunt has intensified lately as the weather has turned because my road bike, with slick road tires has become more and more…
“Like” vs”Like the Idea of…”
As is often the case, my thoughts began to wonder as I walked to the train the other day sparked by someone’s post about “Sunday Funday”. All I could think about was how much I like “Sunday Fundays” and how I couldn’t wait until my next one. But as I thought more about it, I…
Was that an Ice Cream Headache?
It must officially be fall because I got my first ice cream headache while riding across town this morning. I’m amazed at certain new england anomalies when it comes to selective weather memory my favorite being: The first time it snows, even just a light dusting, everyone forgets how to drive, bike, walk and otherwise…
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…
Car Free Week is a real thing!
First 10,000 views and now this! I haven’t looked into this AT ALL, I’m just excited it’s a real thing. But it appears to be legit, it’s government backed and coordinated by NURide so it’s gotta’ be good. It’s just ironic that I found out about it on a day when I borrowed my girlfriends…
Two Options: Full of Sh*t or Honest Mistake!
I must correct the “EPIC RIDE” from post from the other day. I couldn’t figure out what part of the map I created was wrong but it was. The 48 miles seemed way too long and turns out it is. In order to honor the “Carfreebrad Ethos” to maintain honesty the best I can, here’s…
