Car-free (for one more day, at least)

As I wrote recently, as part of my effort to be kind to both the Earth and myself, it's now been over a week since I've used my car (and have been doing my shopping, etc., by bicycle).

But then the rear wheel of one of my (two) bicycles seized up. I realized the hub needed to be rebuilt. I didn't have the right tools to get the job done so the wheel needed to be brought to the bike shop. And, ironically, that seemed to mean that I would need to get in the car.

But, three bungee cords later, I managed to get the wheel onto my other bike and went to the bike shop and back this afternoon.

One more car-free day!
