I doubt I can recap 17 months of CAR Free living in San Diego in one blog post. But I will try to recap over the next couple of weeks my successes and lessons replacing a car with a bicycle.
There is no doubt that I am in better shape. My legs are stronger, my cardiovascular endurance has improved, and I feel a bit righteous about not polluting the air while running errands. I have used cars occasionally either renting from Enterprise or borrowing from family or friends.
