How to break up with your car.

Just Food Coop in Northfield is hosting a panel discussion tomorrow night in their community meeting room. The purpose of this meeting is to help answer questions people have about practical, everyday cycling, commuting, and lifestyle.

This should be a fun event. I and several other community bikers will be there to answer questions, share stories, and to help people think about what your life can be by bike. Registration is FREE, but they are asking you to either call ahead, or to register with any cashier at the store. This will help us gauge numbers and to help the staff prepare the room and meeting.

Here is the press release from Just Food.

How to Break Up with Your Car


How to Break Up with Your Car: A panel discussion to support wannabe cyclists.
Wednesday, May 19, 7-8 p.m. in the Just Food Community Room
Cost: FREE. Please register by phone or with a cashier. 507.650.0106

Want to start driving less and biking more? Whether you want to bike to the grocery store and library on the weekends, or commute to work by bike every day, you’ll find inspiration and information at this excellent (and free!) event. Local bike enthusiasts will present a panel discussion and answer your questions on how to bike more and use your car less in support of Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 21. Panelists will address the nuts and bolts of getting from here to there on a bike, assessing what equipment you might need and how to do that on a budget, practical strategies for choosing routes, parking and locking, and safe biking practices. There will be door prizes and other giveaways as incentives to get you riding.


I hope that a lot of you can make it. It should be a fun time and a very informative evening. Take care, see you tomorrow night!

You're going to ride there on the Dummy, pulling the canoe, right?
