One year ago today, I sold my truck back to the dealer and rode my bike home. Since then most of my travels have been by bike. I rented a car once, in January, for a trip to Bowling Green. After a neck flare-up made riding the bike difficult, I spent some time taking the bus or a cab to work. Luckily, the neck issue has improved.
There was some trepidation about living without a car. There are still some things that are less than ideal (getting the dogs to the vet). I’ve managed and I don’t regret the decision at all.
2012 has not been a good year for bike riding due to a number of health and mental issues. I’m hoping my second car-free year is easier and happier.
This message was actually “pre-recorded” on 11/3, but won’t post until 11/4 at 9:00am. I’ll be on a camping trip (by bike!) and won’t be able to post.
