About this Blog
In June 2014, my family joined the 12 percent of U.S. households that do not own a car. (The statistic comes from the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center, citing a 2009 National Household Travel Survey.) Prior to that, I commuted for several years on public transportation and when I moved in 2013 to a bicycle-friendly community, I embraced local travel on bicycle. This blog places its focus upon my interest in viable alternatives to auto-dependent traveling. I recommend you read Cynthia Parkhill: Paralibrarian and Editor if you came here wanting to read my thoughts about libraries, autism, bullying and books.
