Well, as it comes down to it I am nervous about being "carless". Tomorrow is the big day and the plan is still on. However, I don't know what the hold up is emotionally. It seems so ingrained that having a car is somehow the adult thing, and might I say it the American thing as well.
I really believe that I don't need a car while I live in the Bay Area. Months have gone by and I have not used it. There is good and great mass transit here in the East Bay. CityCarShare is wonderful, easy and cheep. I will save hundreds of dollars a year (maybe even thousands).
Still I have this hesitation in doing the deed - finally being done with the car. I will be healthier without it. It is a good economic choice. (and it is pretty darn eco-happy).
I love riding my bike, especially in the rain.
PS My plan is to mail the Aids Life Cycle caps soon -- so I will cut off the give at the same time. I wanted to give out at least 20 and I am at 18ish. Tell your friends to email me if they are going to ride in the ALC 2010. I will give them a cap -- for fund raising --or just for fun.
