Here in the Kansas City area, on Thursday night, I will be attending Dinner and Bikes.
Celebrate World Car Free Day on September 22nd with an evening of dinner and bikes, and BikeWalkKC. We are delighted to be sponsoring the Kansas City stop of the Dinner and Bikes Tour. Three cyclists are touring the western states to talk about bike culture and the bike economy, and to prepare a delicious vegan dinner for our guests.
Writer Elly Blue, filmmaker Joe Biel, and travelling chef Joshua Ploeg will entertain us with photos, short films, and a great meal. This is a great opportunity to learn about bike culture in other cities and meet new folks right here at home.

|Sometimes carfree commuting involves using |
multiple modes of transportation like: Bike to the bus,
take bus, then bike to work. This just adds to the
May people like the idea, but are not sure how to try living carfree or at the very least carlite (owning a car, but using it on a limited basis).
I am here to say it is not hard at all. You all know how to walk. And I think most of you know how to ride a bike (if not call me and I will teach you immediately!). And I am sure you all know how to ride a bus or train.
|All kids live carfree and love it!|
Kids live this way, so can you.
All you need is good pair of walking shoes. A bike, and you do not need to spend alot. Bikes are very personal, I would recommend a mountain bike...or a touring bike for your carfree lifestyle. Both are made tough and can be adjusted for your urban commutes.
