WizWheelz and 'BentRider Online have just completed judging their annual "Car Free Challenge" essay competition.
I didn't enter because it kinda felt like cheating. I mean, where's the challenge if you've been living car free for a couple of years now? :)
The winning essay by Sheryl Davies (One Very Small Mom and Two Kids: Car Free) is the current lead item on 'BentRider Online and I highly recommend it.
My two favourite quotes:
"• Yes, legs do get tired even if it looks like I am riding a laz-y-boy. And despite how it feels, legs don’t fall off.
• There is always a headwind, no matter which direction you are going, and you could build a sail boat with a Burley"
(Aside: The Burley is the trailer in which the 3 and 5 year old kids were riding in).
Congratulations to Sheryl and I hope she enjoys her new trike!
