Car free for a whole month?! Wow. I guess that's good... but one month? Except for that one year in Baltimore (and even there I was car free for the first 6 months), I've been car free since 1989 and you don't hear me shouting about it... oh, wait, never mind. Still, car free? That's why we live in New York!
What is more interesting about the story from suburban Chicago is the promo for the Dutch Bakfiets.
Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to carry a keg of beer on my bike back to the keg man. Granted, it will be empty. But it will still be filed under "great bike carries."
