Car-Free In USA

I’m at the end of week two of a three week long car-free trip to the East Coast, which will save me close to $1000. Besides the unavoidable plane fare – here are my transportation costs so far.

  • $9 bus fare Boulder to DIA
  • $5 bus fare BWI to Gaithersburg, MD
  • $5 train fare Gaithersburg to Boyds, MD
  • $8 bicycle tube
  • $0 parking
  • $0 gasoline
  • $0 rental car

So far I have ridden about 500 miles on the bicycle.

By using mass transit and a bicycle I have saved huge amounts of money, plus I love to ride and arrive everywhere in a good mood. Before the trip is over I will have visited three states and the District of Columbia on my bicycle.

Best of all,  I’m preventing 0.000000000000000000000001 degrees of global warming.

    The atmosphere does not accumulate heat, as oceans.

    500 miles on bicycle = ~16,000kCal = ~8 large pepperoni pizzas = ~18 six-packs of lager

    Huh! You should fit your bicycle with mudguards , a pannier and saddlebag.

    Snowing in the burbs north of Milwaukee this morning. This past Tuesday, I had the bike out, and rode to the polls to vote. I’m coming up on 72 . . . .

    By putting less CO2 in the atmosphere, our reward this weekend will be rare April snow and record cold in the DC area,. Your attempt to micromanage the climate has failed!

  8. Way to go! I am a bicycle Chauvinist myself. In Austin you can safely hang your bike off the front of the bus in a folding rack.

    Just wanted to leave a note someplace. Government analysts reduced the areas of exceptional drought in California on Thursday — not because any rain fell, but because some snow melted and raised the level of reservoirs. That is the state of government analysis these days: no precipitation, but drought goes down! (And those reservoirs were not there a hundred years ago.)

    You should also get a pump and a tool kit. No good relying on Bicycle Repair Man

    Here’s a car free scene from the Northwest…

    Don’t recognize it, but that’s what it says it is….
