A lot of people are shocked when they learn I don’t have a car.
Everyone always tells me it is such a mistake and that I need to have a vehicle.
I live in the city, everything I could possibly want is biking distance away. I can get groceries, run to the bank, post office or my health and wellness center in under a five minute ride. I don’t need to pay for gas, car insurance or for repairs. I don’t need to worry about getting a ticket or in an accident either. I also am so much healthier being on a bike. I look really good and I know it is due to all my biking. Rather than be a lazy slug and drive everywhere, I get a good work out. On top of that, I do a biking work out a few days a week. I go for miles either pushing for speed or just to go as far as I can. I have proven to be very durable on a bike. I have also gotten equipment to make my biking easier. I have a water bottle mount, basket to hold my fitness gear or groceries, and a speaker to have hands free music. I even have a mount to put my phone on so that I don’t have to worry about it falling out of my basket. I don’t know why more and more people aren’t trying to be healthy and environmentally conscious. It is fun, good for you and saves a lot of money. Somedays I bike enough doing errands that I get out of doing my daily work out.
