years and cycling, walking, and taking transit. Now, I am faced with
having to buy a car in order to get to the train station because a
major bridge is being demolished and replaced, and the detour route is
too dangerous to cycle on; two narrow lanes in an industrial zone
bordered by a toll-road embankment and oil storage tanks, no street
lights, no observable speed limit, no enforcement. Here's a Google
street view of the worst part http://goo.gl/maps/K7cQc.

space from handi-spot to bike rack, 2 years after back surgery which
followed 5 years of being virtually bedridden. Cycling is just one part of
the story, but a big one. Transportation choices not feasible for us in
Scottsdale, AZ, helped save his life when we moved to a ped/bike friendly OR
suburb. Like hubby, I also
<https://www.facebook.com/CarfreeFamily/photos_stream> lost pounds, and we
both find ourselves at same weight and (better?) physical condition as when
we were teens. 2013 marks the beginning of our 3rd year as a 7 person
carfree family. 16 year old has logged nearly 1,200 bike commuter miles
since starting a part time job. Happy pedaling!

I know that I've gained weight since I moved back to the very car-oriented
city of Minneapolis, which is full of "you can't get there from here"
situations if you try to navigate via public transit.
