The fine printCar Free Days is provided “AS IS” with no warranties, expressed or implied. Riding your bike is serious stuff. Riding with kids even more so (but always better than riding in a car). Obtain proper training, use a helmet, ride smart, have fun, wear clean underpants when appropriate (but not under cycling shorts!), laugh a lot, and whenever possible, stay out of cars.

It’s been a year since we bought our matching yellow Bromptons. Of all the bikes in our fleet, our Bromptons garner the most notice. Why? Obviously because of the tiny fold. And because they’re matching. And lemon-yellow. And we’re both … Continue reading
As Anne mentioned recently, we’ve been loving the Bromptons and the role they’ve helped play in letting us live car-light. Beyond the expanded Zipcar range, or the fact that a gorilla-sized dad and his 9-year-old daughter can ride the same … Continue reading
You’re really going to need coffee for this one, get it now before you start. In Part One of What Free Days, we talked about the (editor: ugly, fat, smelly, comfortable, dry, cheap, and easy) car in our driveway, non-subsidized … Continue reading
Yes, this blog is titled Car Free DAYS, with the emphasis (originally, now, and always) on the DAYS part. That’s how it was from the beginning, and though we went pretty heavy into the car-free part for a while, the DAYS emphasis was always our intention.

If you’re snickering or thinking about offering advice and/or wisdom or mansplaining (editor: you’re dropping mansplaining on our dear readers?

Previous post Gold Beach to Eureka, CA Day 16: Eureka, CA to Richardson Grove State Park We got a slow start due to the comfy beds and bad hotel TV. The kids really relish down time in the hotel and … Continue reading

Parenting fact: one-on-one time with kids is where all of the good dialogue happens. When I was in high school, my dad was well aware of this fact. I think that’s why he’d bribe me with rides to school in … Continue reading
When Tim and I recount family bike adventures to friends and strangers, a typical response is, “What do the kids think”? “Do they like bike touring?” If we were being completely honest, we’d reply, “of course not”. You’ll soon ascertain that we have … Continue reading
