    And I like "what do you do when it rains?". It's one with such a good answer.

    I'm car free and get lots of sympathy and concern this time of year. Lots of offers to take me shopping. People...

    It does have a stigma. Many people judge the poor unfairly, like its their fault. I say I'm blessed to have the learning ability and marketable skills I possess and there but by the grace of God go...

    Problem with outlets is it ties you down till you're charged. Ride with a dynohub and you never have to find an outlet or hang around it waiting.

    Lots of times on tour I'll go have a salad by buying a bag of lettuce and other ingredients. I carry some vinegar and oil and might have rasins or feta cheese. I mix it in the bag and eat it onsite...

    That's all well and good. A lot depends on whether you're much of user of smart devices or not. If you are then you already have experience with lots of apps and typical ways of interacting with...

    I'm not car free to save money. Nor am I forced into it. I'm car free because I think that technology assisted transportation is insidiously convenient and I don't want the temptation that owning a...

    All species have a little slice of time. As do all individuals. As a species, our time has been barely average, and FAR less than quite a few living today.

    If I'd been counting them along the way I might know. But I never considered it worth allocating brain cells for. Much easier to answer how many bikes I own!

    Really? I would go about 7 mph up that I'm guessing. I can't go 35 on the flats! I don't have my speed at all grades memorized. I do know I recently did a long climb at 14% grade and did at 3.5...

    I wonder how many people are car free because of gas prices. Not me. I like the benefit. But if gas were free I still would not drive a car. It's bad for my general health and attitude.
