Setbacks and Back on the Road

My grand plan to go car-less hit a bump at the end of last month when I had a minor accident on my bike (no car involved, thankfully). Since then I’ve had three flat tires, an x-ray, and  bit of repair costs. I have to admit: after the accident, I continue to be really shy of gravel in the road and 90 degree turns, but I’m getting my comfort back in little doses every day.

This week is the second week that I’ve been back completely car-less. With one day tele-commuting (today), I will have been to Kennesaw twice, Decatur, and Dunwoody using my bike, Marta trains, and the Cobb Linc bus system.

By the end of this week, I will have covered 210 miles around Atlanta without driving a car.
