I was over reading The MinusCar Project tonight, and saw the following quote:
"Live free or drive."
MinusCar has been an inspiration to many people for driving their cars less, including me. Here I am back in 2006 sporting my MinusCar Project t-shirt.
Snakebite, another Sioux Falls, South Dakota cyclist has went as far as selling his car! This means he no longer owns a car, but will still use public transportation, and even rent a car for longer trips such as vacations. This is going to be a great experiment!
Snakebite is going to keep track of the money he would have spent on a car payment, insurance, maintenance, and gas costs. To compare, he'll keep track of how much he spends on bus fares, taxi fares, and car rentals as they occur. He also plans to do a monthly post of the results.
Keep track of his progress over at Life Bikin'.
There are certainly many more blogger/cyclists worth mentioning, but I don't want to overwhelm this post. Instead I think I'll do a "spotlight" post every once in a while for our inspiration.
Since I like posts with pictures, I'll finish today's post with a picture from this week. This is Scott J. (also a bicycle commuter) shreddin' down the bunny trail. This is a newer trail named Jackrabbit. When riding Ash Canyon, it's the last section of single track we hit before returning to civilization on our lunch time rides. It's fast and skinny, and takes some skill to take the turns at speed. It's a great way to end the ride!
