Carfree Roundup

    • Shareable: What is a Shareable City? Chris Carlsson talks about the shared space of cities and how cities create a shared culture and are created by that shared culture. He also identifies an important need I’ve been thinking about a lot lately of “how we [can] begin to connect across the class, age, and race barriers that divide us.”
    • Totally Smitten Mama, Quest for the Simple Life Lex expounds on her family’s reasons for giving up the “simple” rural life, that didn’t turn out to be so simple since it meant they had to drive all the time. Instead, her family will soon be moving into town where they can walk, bike and bus for almost all of their transport instead of driving. She writes eloquently about the real perks of arranging life so you drive less (hint: it’s not all about being a smug environmentalist).
    • Old enough to go to school alone? When can a kid start walking or biking to school alone?








  • Lovely Bicycle!: DZnuts for the Ladies? Call me completely ignorant, but I didn’t even realize that there creams existed to protect very personal and tender areas during biking. So thanks to Dottie for enlightening me!
