Car Free Since 2002

Living car-free for over a decade!

I ride 30 mile commutes
and 5 minute trips to the grocery store.

I ride to improve my quality of life and to
demonstrate that cycling is viable transportation.

   Bike Riders:
  1. improve 
    personal health.
  2. reduce deaths and injuries for all road users.
  3. eliminate and avoid traffic congestion.
  4. support local businesses.
  5. make no air pollution.
  6. reduce dependence on foreign oil. 
  7. are powered by food, a local renewable energy.
  8. require very little public space.
  9. connect and foster stronger and safer communities.
  10. save money for themselves and tax payers.
  11. have fun!

     unbeatable efficiency in local transportation
                                                   the joy of flying on two wheels

I work for an equitable and sustainable planet.  

Driving is our largest personal environmental impact. (UCSUSA)

Car crashes are the top cause of death and injury for young people. (WHO, CDC)

Childhood obesity has tripled in a generation.  (CDC)

Auto-centric transportation adversely affects the young, elderly, handicapped, and poor. (Transportation For America)

The bike is an effective solution to complex and expensive social problems.

We need safe places for all forms of transportation.
Livable or "complete street" designs accommodate both active and motorized transportation.

Safe Routes to Schools helps kids reclaim the right to enjoy the benefits of walking and biking to school.

I am not one less car.  I am one more bicycle.
