Car-Free – The First Year

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.

  1. Congratulations, David! I admire your efforts, and when I think of my new commute am envious in some ways. Here’s hoping that the next year will be even more rewarding.
