Note: you can't pick your children up from school on a bicycle.

Actually, I take my son to school every day with my bicycle. I've got a Chariot-brand bike carrier that I tow behind the bike. It seats two, and sometimes I drive both kids around with it.

I get a bit nervous on busy streets that don't have bike lanes, but hopefully, that will improve over time.

I read once - if I recall correctly - that if you have just one car, you can afford to have an extra $100,000 on your mortgage. I'd rather have one car and a sweet pad downtown, close enough to school and work that I can ride my bike there, than have two cars.

I know that's not an option for everyone, but if you can make it work, it's awesome.
