    I like to visit this local street and check out the lavish displays of lights they put up every year. This year I rode the bus as near as it goes and then walked the last mile or so. But our local...

    Where I live they are gradually eliminating all of the grade crossings. They're being replaced by elevated tracks with the roads running across through underpasses, so it will be nearly impossible to...

    That's true, most of the carts I've seen were flimsy. It's almost as if they don't expect anyone to actually use these things. I have seen a few that are designed more like rolling luggage; these...

    I felt kind of decadent using the services, but food deliveries turned out to be a lifesaver this summer. First my boyfriend was hit by a car and injured his knees, so he couldn't walk. Later that...

    If you want to use a scooter for transportation long-term (and I see a lot of people doing just that around here), you'd probably be better off with a Xootr. They're made to fit adults and they fold...

    And this would be just fine...if only people were capable of accurately judging how fast is safe.

    You already have one bike, so keep that and use it as your backup bike. Take your time looking around, researching, and test riding whatever you can. One day you'll find a bike that captures your...

    It is great to see cities changing policy to favor non-motorized transporation and public transit. Definitely a step in the right direction.

    I realize this is completely tangential, but that's technically untrue. Slavery existed in the new world long before European contact. The example I'm familiar with is the Aztecs, who had a very...

    I am not proud of choosing to be car-free, but I am often filled with gratitude that I made that choice. Every time I ride in someone's car and we enter a parking lot crowded with people trying to...

    Maybe you could try a rain cape. I have no experience with this particular one, I just found it with a web search, but it's a good example. There are other brands available.

    I suggest this as...

    Motorcyclists often wear earplugs, the kind that are sold for a couple of dollars in any drugstore, while riding. Even inside a full-face helmet, wind noise can be deafening on a motorcycle. The...

    I would not reply to the e-mail or call the number listed in it. It could be a fake, even though on the surface it doesn't appear to be one. Since the police department has a contact page, I'd use...

    It's not just one city, I discovered. There's a link on the site that takes you to similar programs in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and a few other California cities.

    Since this thread is about carfree vacations, that would be irrelevant. But I'm sure you could look it up if you wanted to know.

    This is interesting. I was looking up some information about Amtrak and saw this link on their site. It seems at least one city is now promoting car-free travel.

    Actually, there is a best helmet...it's the one that fits your head best. Helmets are generally made to fit specific head shapes, and you have to find out which ones fit yours by trying them on. Even...

    You could just punch a hole in the flyer and use a small rubberband to secure it on the end of a handlebar. No risk of damaging anything that way. That said, if I found a flyer on my bike it would...

    I believe that is as it should be. LCF exists because we needed a place to talk about these social, environmental, and cultural issues that are indirectly related to bikes. If that were not the case,...
