Living without a car is fun and easy

Living carefree ( and car free )

In September I moved to Oregon to teach at a University. I flew in with a folding bicycle and not much else. This is the first time in 10 years I have lived car-free. It has been a wonderful experience, I have lost 10 lbs and gained tons of fitness in my first month. 

I have a 3 mile roundtrip commute to work, a 2 mile roundtrip to the supermarket, and a 3 mile roundtrip to the gym. I have been riding 10-15 miles per day in addition to my normal workouts. I can't take days off if it rainy or cold....this is a real blessing to get me working.
