About 5 years ago we made a decision to become a one car family. We are fortunate to live in Portland and especially be in a part of Portland where this is actually a reasonable choice. Today like everyday I put the bags on my bike, filled them up with boxes from what I have sold for the past 24 hours, and made the journey to the post office. I do this whether or not it is rainy, cloudy, sunny, or windy. It doesn’t snow much here, but when it does I will walk up to the post office. It is a 2 mile journey round trip and I go 5 or 6 days a week. Over the past 5 years that means that I have biked over 2500 miles!
