6+ yrs. car free

Amazing what you do to yourself in your life. I use to drink a lot and drive. Hence, too many DUI's. Now I ride everywhere and I only miss the car when it is raining, cold or I really want to do something somewhere with my son, (12 yrs old who lives with me). Other then that, I do not miss the crazy drivers as I breeze past them riding to and from work.
The name is Charlie and I am always looking for a cycling partner on weekends.

Hi Charlie. I'm an alcoholic and a former cager too. (I feel like I'm at a meeting!)

I haven't had a drink in 25 years and I haven't had a car in 6 years. Sounds like you're doing real good. Does your son ride a bike? He might be ready to be your weekend cycling partner.

welcome and enjoy the forums.
