I'd like to see how many people in this group are car-free and have kids. Also, a lot of posts I see are in the northern climates where profuse sweating is not a problem. But here in Austin, it's HOT in August. I still ride my bike to work, but I also have a truck I use. Living with kids, I can't see a way to live without a car. I can bike them to work, but other issues, such as music lessons, etc, would be impossible without a car.
I commend all of you who are car free. Seriously. It must feel really good.
