Things That Can Be Carried in a Cart


$36.79 in groceries.

Sometimes I just have to use my feet.

To me, walking is to bicycling as bicycling is to driving...it slows things down and brings things into perspective; I see and notice things when I walk that I likely wouldn't if on a bike and definitely wouldn't if in a car. 

I needed a few things from the store and had planned on riding a bike the six blocks to get them but when I stepped outside it was such a lovely early-autumn evening that I wanted to savor it. I walked with my son and we had a really nice conversation.

Sometimes--especially on such a fine and carefree evening--my feet trump my bike(s).

Happy World Car-Free Day.
