Where did you go today without using a car?
« on: April 30, 2017, 07:14:53 PM »
Just like the subject line says: Where did you go today without using a car?

Would love to hear about your partial or complete multi-modal travels, including destinations and modes of transport.

My bathroom.



LOL I work at home so overall I drive very little, but I almost never go anywhere by bike/foot. Just too lazy, I guess. Also I spend so little on gas as it is, and have an older paid-off car, so it's just not a big concern of mine.

Library, music festival, grocery store, rock climbing gym, playground. Took the kid with me to each in the cargobike.

Thought about picking up a bunch of houseplants in the bike too, but the nursery is on a particularly treacherous road, and I didn't feel safe biking there with the kid, so we took the car instead.

Walked to a coffee shop, then walked to my workplace, then walked home.  Did not drive at all.

We live two blocks from grocery, gym, hairdresser, restaurants, parks, subway and beach. No need to drive on weekends.

I biked 15 miles round trip to return 8 beer bottles for 80 cents, and pick up the free 6 pack of ice tea that was on my store loyalty card.

Kids like to go to parks and sometimes to the mall, good thing they are walking distance so we go out late in the afternoon.

I rode my bike to work this morning, and took the tram home (it was raining in the arvo and it was still quite wet everywhere, so I decided to leave the bike at work).
