    Yeah... I use the T-Mobile version of this. $100 1,000 minutes... good for a year.

    A few suggestions here:
    How to Avoid Bee and Wasp Stings

    Might be a good idea to pass on wearing sandals. Fully clothed is much safer. Also don't smell like a bear or a flower:)

    I find bikes from the 1980s to be so much more commute friendly than older bikes. But an old Schwinn is about the most indestructable vehicle in the universe. You often see lighter bike with dented...

    When you are car-free, the planning is a little more critical. For example, I try to keep a minimum amount of food in the cupboard on the premise that some night I might arrive home tired and...

    The problem with my beater bike is that I've gradually added a lot of time and money into upgrading it. Beaters are great but it's hard to resist upgrading.

    Insurance is another option. Last time...

    I've often seen two bicycles on a bus... probably meaning a third bicycle rider would have to wait for the next bus. Hasn't happened to me yet... but I usually only use the service in an emergency.

    I've done extensive research over the past months and the best answer, if you insist on wearing a helmet, is the hair gel trick... not much of it... a little dab will do it. Thanks to everyone who...

    Do you ride errands when you are bone tired?

    I try to organize my errands so I do a little each day, not too much in the way of recreational rides, so I get everything I need without needing a drive from anyone.

    This week I'm trying to get...

    I wonder if this is much out of line with other Canadian cities. My old hometown of St John's NL always had a large number of people who simply walked everywhere. Taxis were abundant and reasonably...

    Yeah, me too. I have too many bikes to outfit a computer on each. Mostly I travel the same routes. I know the mileage, so it's easy to figure out. I guess my estimates are a bit of a swag, but I'm...

    If you are opposed to throwaway alcohol wipes, you can always bring an old-fashioned facecloth. Get it damp with cold water. It cools you down quickly.

    Most thinking people would chose a house close to amenities... even if they used the car extensively. Unfortunately many are forced to settle for less than ideal suburbs that meet their price range.

    It's pathetic that so few students ride. You can really notice how traffic is diminished throughout my city when school closes. Sad to think so many students miss out on all this fun.

    So do Canadians have more public transit options? I certainly notice this coming to the Mid West where public transit is pretty sparse.
