What an interesting predicament I am in. A month ago I went cold turkey, car-free, I just gave it away. Just to let you know who I am, I just turned 20, I am a Christian, Libertarian, Vegetarian, Environmentalist, Full-time student, who lives a little bit over 17 miles from school. I am fundamentally against cars in their present state. Now, when I went car free I understood that my bike will be my car and I am not willing to compromise in driving unless biking was impossible, and I will still have a social life, I'll just bike to get there. Finally I live in Orange County, and as you might know the housing market is insane so my only option is student loans (and being a libertarian I do not belive in government grants and loans) which can really add up, or living with my parents. I chose the latter.
Here comes the problem. My dad is a little bit on the paranoid side and is very against biking, and just tonight (after getting home after 1:30 AM after a 20 mile ride) made a rule, no biking after dark. I realise I am an adult but I understand, his house his rules.
I need to bike, want to tour on my Trek 520 to Seattle over the summer, so this is a pretty big life choose.
So what should I do, give up and drive, or rebel and probably cause problems, or try to move out , or something I haven't thought of?
