Car free and loving it!

Hey everyone! I have been meaning to be a part of this community for a long time! I got started loving bikes when I was a kid and collected and rode old cruisers from the 40s and 50s. In my late 20s I started biking to work-at least half way. I rode old ten speeds and got a trek 7500fx in '05. It still serves me well but I want a cyclo-cross and a single fixed gear now with a freewheel. I think I may try to sell the Trek here. I became car free by choice last year and now bike and bus to most of the places I need to go. Little by little I'm learning to maintain and fix my bike. I started to get into a little bike advocacy this year with the League of Michigan Bicyclists. We are trying to change legislation in favor of cyclists' rights and for better non-motorized transportation planning. I am also an artist who works in a variety of traditional and digital media. I live in Lansing, Michigan. Love to hear from you...

Hello!

I'm car free as well, but only because it's easier to not have a car where I live. I can still feel smug about it though.

Oh yessss.


And the money I save is pretty good as well.

Welcome in fellow Michiganer, I turned 12 in Lansing. Tried to Google Earth the old neighborhood, but a lot's changed in 40 years.

I also quit driving in 96, big savings, but more for exercise.

Hello sushisoo, one of my favourite members, Roody, also lives in Lansing. He too is car free, and if you have not already found him, he's a valuable member, with a lot of good insights.


Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
