It started out as an inspiration. An inspiration from No Impact Man, specifically. He's this dude living in New York who decided to practice what he preached and is currently undergoing a project, attempting to have as little environmental impact as possible. While I wish I could wholeheartedly join him in this endeavor, as even simple things like buying local organic and recycling cancel themselves out due to driving distances, I decided it was time to live my redemptive worldview and do something. The most logical starting point was to start biking to work. Of course, this meant I needed to buy a bicycle. After some Craig's List adventuring, I came across my dream bike: a 70's candy apple red Schwinn Breeze with a basket and bell! It's so beautiful and I can't wait to start riding it around!
