I'm now convinced that if you want to be car-free and depend mostly on cycling to haul your butt around, you have to tone down your riding style a bit.

I had a tough time coming to terms with this reality. As my sig-line reflects, I like the addictive quality of a heart-pounding, pedal-mashing, MP3-blaring ride. But doing that day in and day out, hauling groceries, meeting appointments, running errands will cause one helluva cranky, achey burnout.
