Personal preference and good luck.

I prefer not to drive in populated areas or spend time in the suburbs. I also prefer riding my bike over most other activities, and I enjoy walking on occasion. All things equal, I'd prefer to spend my meager discretionary income on books, bikes, and body art rather than vehicle maintenance.

Good luck landed me in a place where the basic things I need (employment, groceries, healthcare) are within three miles of a house I could afford to buy in a neighborhood I like, where the infrastructure and culture is supportive of cycling, even with a trailer, and where the weather is good enough that I can bike year round.
